Mrs. Ginger Hill

 

 I have taught in Johnston County for 30 years. I knew that I was going to be a teacher when I was six years old.  Teaching is my passion. Most of my experience has been in fifth grade, but this is my fourth year teaching ELA at Archer Lodge Middle School. I received my undergraduate degree in Early Childhood Development from Meredith College.  I received my master's degree from Campbell University in Curriculum and Instruction.

My husband and I live in Clayton.  We have one son and daughter-in-law and a six month old grandson!!!  When I am not at school, I love spending time with my family.  I enjoy singing, cooking, and READING. I especially like mystery stories. My favorite place to visit is the beach.  

I look forward to working with my students and their parents this year.  With our special circumstances, it will be a year like no other.  Just remember that I am here to help, so don't ever hesitate to get in contact with me if you have questions or concerns.

Expectations:  Even though we are beginning the year virtually, it is the expectation that all students join their classes "LIVE" each day. Our class will consist of whole group instruction, independent practice, group work (when applicable).  There will also be a daily "ticket out the door" assignment that will be due each day. Students attending LIVE should be able to complete and submit the "ticket out door" assignment before the class ends.  Since we will be delivering NEW INSTRUCTION for our 6th grade students, it is so important to attend the class each day.  If a student misses a session, they can make it up by watching a video of the lesson that was taught.  If a student is "absent" for the LIVE session, they are expected to watch the video and turn in the work that was required for that day.  Until the work is submitted, students that don't attend the LIVE session will be counted ABSENT. 

I will be posting the code (link) to join our virtual lessons in Google Classroom.  Students do need to be logged onto their device with their JCPS account in order to access the meeting.  I also have listed some basic rules of Etiquette for our virtual meeting.
