Welcome to 2nd Grade!   

Hello! My name is Hillary Hilbert and I am teaching 2nd grade at Collins-Maxwell Elementary this school year!  

I grew up on a farm outside of Corwith, Iowa and attended Corwith-Wesley-LuVerne High School, where I graduated in 2011. Upon graduating from high school, I attended the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls where I graduated with a dual major in Elementary and Middle Level Education as well as minors in Literacy and Mathematics Education. I student taught in the Ankeny Community School District in 3rd grade and the Waukee Community School District in 7th grade language arts. I then spent a semester as a substitute teacher in the Ankeny, Waukee, and Urbandale school districts before landing a job as a 3rd grade teacher here in Collins! I have taught 3rd grade the past two years and am now making a change to 2nd grade and am very excited for what 2nd grade has to bring!  

This will be my third year of teaching and I am beyond excited to embark on the adventure of helping a new group of 2nd graders learn and grow! I am looking forward to a fantastic year!!
