Hello! My name is Hillary Newell. I've been teaching at SPJ for over 10 years. I taught first grade for five years and now I am teaching second grade. I attended Mount Union and graduated in 2003 with my bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education. In May of 2011, I graduated from Walsh University with my master's degree in Education. When I am not teaching, I love to be with my family! I also love to relax and read a good book. A fun fact about me is that I attended Saints Philip and James as a student from Kindergarten-8th grade!
