Hilary joined the Center for Student Achievement from the classroom, where she taught middle school math and science in Glendale, Arizona through Teach for America. Hilary led 86% of her students to proficiency and an average growth of 110 points from the Galileo pre-test to post-test. Her interest in training and coaching began while serving as a school representative on the district’s guiding coalition, where she collaborated with stakeholders to plan and implement a results-based academic accountability system. Hilary is passionate about Culturally Responsive Teaching as a tool to help diverse learners succeed, and is excited to partner with Arizona schools to increase student achievement. She is the 2015 recipient of the Pride of Pendergast award, and graduated from Lehigh University with a Bachelor’s degree in Design Arts and from Arizona State University with a Master’s degree in Secondary Education.
