Hello! My name is Jacky Schlegel and this is my first year at Hillview Middle School. I am so excited to be here and am looking forward to a fantastic year ahead! Before coming to Hillview I worked in Redwood City, teaching 6, 7, and 8th grade English language development and History. This year I am teaching 6th grade Humanities Core and the Coding 1 elective.
I attended the University of California, Irvine. There I received my Bachelor of Arts in English, Master of Arts in Teaching (elementary and secondary education) and my single subject teaching credentials. I lived in Irvine for seven years before finally deciding to try out northern California and I love it here!
I am originally from South Portland, Maine. I moved to California in 2010 to pursue my dream of working in the field of education. I still return to Maine every summer and winter, though I wish I had time to visit in the fall! I also have family in Utah, Alaska, Kauai and Massachusetts. So needless to say, I love traveling through the U.S. as often as I can.
