Foundation for Excellence in Public Education

There are many fine teachers at Hilsman who deserve to be nominated for one of these awards; unfortunately last year HMS had only one nominee. One of our trustees, Dr. Maxine Easom, is making an appointment with Dr. Price to see how the FFE can help make sure that our faculty and staff are well represented. There are three particular awards that we simply must have nominees for: the Kilpatrick Middle School Teaching award, the Teacher of Promise Award for those teaching less than four years, and the Teacher of Excellence Award for those teaching four years or more.
