KATHRYN Rippentrop - HUMANITIES CORE TEACHER
I am a graduate of the University of California Irvine and hold two bachelor's degrees in History and Art History, as well as a Masters Degree in Teaching. I previously taught 6th Grade Core in the Tustin Unified School District in Orange County, California. This is my fifth year at Hillview Middle School as a member of the 6th Grade Humanities Core Team.
I am passionate about education and believe that everyone should be a life-long learner. I am the mother of four children; two sons and two daughters, as well as three grandsons! I love to travel and have spent time in Italy, Portugal, France, Ireland, the United Kingdom, and Spain, as well as traveled across the United States. During the summer, I often spend time in Washington D.C. where my oldest daughter now lives and works for the Department of Homeland Security, as well as visiting my younger daughter in the Netherlands. In my free time, I love to spend time in the outdoors camping and hiking, as well as biking local trails.
I am looking forward to encouraging each and every one of my students to strive for excellence. I am thrilled to be part of the team of educators at Hillview Middle School!! Go Hawks!!
