Mrs. Hilary Craig
Welcome to Room 16! I'm Hilary Craig and I am very excited to begin another great year at Timber Ridge. I'd been teaching for many years in the Issaquah District before finally making my way back to the valley to work for the last 4 years, and I have lived in the area for the last 19 years. I was born and raised to the age of 8 in Berlin, Germany. My mother is native German and my father, though born and raised in North Carolina, was stationed out of Berlin for his work as a Pan American pilot. I feel privileged to have had the opportunities to travel and grow up with parents of diverse backgrounds and a wealth of knowledge. I still love foreign language studies and dream of taking my family back to Europe one day for an adventurous family trip. After Germany, my family moved to southern Oregon where I finished high school. I attended University of Oregon where I earned a degree in Business Finance and Management. I knew I wanted to be a teacher, but I also felt I would be a much better educator after having gone out into the world and work force myself. I married my husband Brad in 2002, and in 2006, we were blessed with a beautiful girl who's know a seventh grader at Twin Falls Middle School! We also have a rambunctious golden retriever, Houston. We very much enjoy outdoor fun, beach trips, and other short family excursions to the wonderful surrounding areas. I eagerly await each new year and the chance to learn some important things about all of my students as well!
