“Words cannot begin to describe how excited I am to join the Riverwood Team,” Hill said in a letter to her the Riverwood Staff.   “I truly appreciate this opportunity to work with an outstanding group of educators, amazing students, and community stakeholders.  We are in one of the most unique times to be an educator.  We are facing many challenges, yet we have some of the best opportunities with our Riverwood students, the community, and each other. Together, we will work through all of these challenges and struggles we will encounter this year because we are a team. I can't wait to begin working with each one of you and continuing the great journey Riverwood has already started!”

One of the most important aspects of my work  at Riverwood will be building relationships with students,  teachers, and families. You’ll find me in the hallways, classrooms, and at special activities. My passion  has been and always will be educating students. With that  in mind, you can expect that I will work diligently with teachers to make sure Riverwood students are exposed to curriculum and instruction that is both  engaging and challenging. I have an open door policy and  welcome your input and ideas. I’m looking forward  to meeting each of you as we start this new and exciting  year together.
