LuAnn Hill’s influence is felt throughout Edgemont Elementary. Not only does she plan, teach, and evaluate curriculum for six different grades in the school, but she coordinates and cooperates with every teacher in the building. Hill follows through with students and rewards them with a drool-worthy class store and a bevy of charts and tricks to help them succeed in their general education classes. Then, as adviser to Edgemont’s student council, Hill inspires her students to recycle all the paper in the school and run fundraisers for the American Heart Association. For these reasons and more, Edgemont is happy to announce Hill as the school’s 2018 Teacher of the Year.
