Ms. Marie Orange Vilvert

Welcome Students & Guardians to Hightower High School,

    My name is Marie Minnencie Orange Vilvert, and I am Hightower's ESOL English teacher.  This is my third year on Hurricane Lane; however, I have been an educator for eight years in school districts from Florida to Texas.  I am a wife, mother, and avid teacher who enjoys cooking, singing, and reading romantic novels.  I am a member of the Language Proficiency Assessment Committee (LPAC), and the Emergent Bilingual Hightower Compliance Team.

      I know the beginning of the 2022-2023 school year is much different than school years in the past.  Nevertheless, I think this will still be an amazing school year.  I am truly excited to have our students back in my classroom.  It is a joy to begin the journey of high school with each student.  Together we can work to ensure that each and every student is academically successful, and on the path to becoming a Hightower Hurricane graduate.
