Email: jhillis@mlslions.org

I was born in Ohio and earned my Master’s degree in Education from Ohio State University. I have been married to my husband Walt for 30 years and we have two boys, Steven and Brian, and two dogs, Mo and Belle.

Both my mother and my aunt were teachers for over 20 years, so teaching is in my blood! I have taught kindergarten in Ohio, art in Michigan, and sixth grade in Winfield, MO. This is my sixteenth year teaching art at Messiah and it has been a wonderful opportunity to be able to do something I love at a place that I love!  When I am not teaching at Messiah, I enjoy traveling, photography, reading, coffee and Buckeye football.
