Janice Hill » Welcome to 1st Grade!

Welcome to 1st Grade!

My name is Janice Hill and I am a first grade teacher.  I was born and raised in Johnstown, PA.  My husband, Dan, and I both graduated from Westmont in 1996.  Our two children now attend Westmont.  James (J.D.) is in 6th grade and Josie is in 4th grade.


I graduated from West Virginia University and Chatham University.  I have a degree in Elementary Education K-6 and I have my Master's Degree in Education.  I also have a Bachelor's Degree in History and Business Administration. I am currently working towards my ESL certification. I absolutely love teaching. I am always trying to encourage students to be proud of their accomplishments and confident in their abilities.  Kindness and caring is an important part of my classroom. I want kids to feel valued and respected by their peers.  My motto in the classroom is to try your best in whatever you do! 


When I am not in school, I love to travel with my husband. I am very adventurous. I also love watching my children participate in football, wrestling, ballet, cheerleading and the Healthy Running Series (cross-country running for kids). You can also find me making candles, cooking, biking, hiking, camping, shopping, boxing, and skiing in my free time. 


My students know me for my love of cats (I have four- Sophie, Ferris, Fiona, and Francy), being a huge WVU Mountaineers fan, and wearing necklaces!
