Mrs. Sam Hill
I'm Mrs. Hill! This is my fourth year teaching, all of which have been at The Fort teaching 8th grade science.
I graduated from Texas A&M College Station in 2019 with a B.S. in Bioenvironmental Sciences. Before becoming a teacher, I worked a variety of odd jobs, including working at the USDA in an entomology lab and at an ice cream shop (where I met my husband). I've always had a passion for science and enjoy sharing it with my students. My goal is for all my students to leave my class with the skills to problem solve and make educated choices so that they can advocate for themselves, regardless of if they choose to pursue a career in STEM. Science should be accessible to everyone.
In my free time, I enjoy annoying my husband and cats, taking care of my plants, listening to podcasts, reading, and traveling. I also enjoy watching sports with my friends and attending games. My favorite teams are the Houston Astros (MLB), Sugar Land Space Cowboys (AAA), and Dallas Stars (NHL), and of course, the FSMS Falcons!
