MA Education Yearbook Advisor
Mrs. Christina Hill
7th Grade Life Science Teacher
My name is Christina Hill and I teach Life Science and Honors Life Science for the 7th Grade Maroon Team. I am also the yearbook advisor for Prairie Ridge I love teaching and getting to know each one of my students.
I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa (GO PANTHERS!) with a double major in Earth Science and Education and a minor in Dance. While there I was part of a sorority that I am still actively involved with and I also danced with the Orchesis Dance Company. I completed my Masters in Education from Viterbo University during the summer of 2012.
Before teaching in Ankeny, I had the great privilege of being able to work as Park Ranger at Saylorville Lake, and a Naturalist with Polk County Conservation. These experiences have added so many different experiences that I enjoy referencing while teaching in order to add practical application to our learning.
Besides teaching I enjoy spending time outdoors with my husband, our son Caleb, daughters Abygail and Natalie, and our Yellow Lab Ellie May. I also enjoy spending time scrapbooking (when I have time), hunting, and watching reality TV.
