Mrs. Vanessa Hill


Welcome to my REACH webpage.   My name is Vanessa Hill and I’ve been teaching in the Amphitheater District for over twelve years.  I am married and have two beautiful children and three adorable dogs.  This will be my sixth year in the REACH Department.  I enjoy reading, traveling, and spending time with my AMAZING family.

Defining Moment in Education

I went back to school to get my post-baccalaureate teaching certification and Master of Arts in Education degree after working for Americorps.  Americorps provided me the opportunity to work with children in an after school care program as an environmental educator.  I loved working with the children in that program and realized teaching was the life for me.

 Core Educational Belief

I believe all people are creative.  My job as a gifted specialist is to tap into that creativity.

 Prior Experience

Wilson K-8 School-Sixth grade Math, Pre-Algebra, and Social Studies

Professional Accomplishments

1st, 2nd, and 3rd place trophies as coach of Future Problem Solving teams at Rio Vista and Amphitheater Middle School
