Meet the Teacher

Welcome to Full Day Kindergarten at Platte River Academy!  My name is Mrs. Hilary Price, and I am very excited to accompany your child on an exciting journey through their Kindergarten year! 

I received my Bachelor of Arts in Education as well as my Master of Education from National-Louis University in Chicago.  I began teaching as a certified teacher in Suburban Chicago in 2002, and I have been working professionally with children since 1996.  I am bilingual, and have taught English and Spanish speakers in Early Childhood and Kindergarten in both special education and mainstream classes.

My amazing husband David and I have twin daughters Elizabeth and Samantha, who are in fifth grade this year. You'll find them crafting and reading a LOT.  Also part of our family is our 16 year-old Cornish Rex cat, Frankie.  Look for Mr. Price as the giant orange cone during carpool on Halloween! 

In my spare time (ha!), I enjoy volunteering at church, camping, climbing 14'ers, reading, competing in triathlons, and cheering for the BRONCOS!!!!

We moved to glorious Colorado from Illinois in the summer of 2007, at which time I chose to spend a few years at home with our girls.  During my time at home, I also taught a small, successful pre-kindergarten program. 

I returned to the classroom in 2011 as PRA's Full Day Kindie teacher, and I could not be happier!  I adore teaching and learning, and PRA is a great place to do both!
