In this week’s episode of The Cutting Ed podcast, we talk to English instructor Beatrice Hill, from West Fargo High School.
Beatrice Hill is in her fifth year at West Fargo High School, teaching English Language Arts. During her first year, she was approached by students who wanted to begin a literary magazine. Hill allows the students to take the lead on every aspect of the magazine, from providing content and page design to seeking out fundraising sources and including advertising. Hill says she serves as an adviser, and when the students run into problems, they develop the skills to problem-solve.
Hill says she comes from a long line of teachers and that education has been really valued within my family. She says she not only comes from a line of exceptional teachers, but she’s also had the privilege of being taught by exceptional teachers. She believes that every teacher she’s had along the way has inspired her in some capacity and has influenced her to help her get where she is today.
