Ms. Liz Hiller
Welcome Parents and Students,
Well it was a very difficult and extremely odd ending to the 2019-2020 school year. I am so glad we did get a chance to do a fun send off to middle school for our students. I hope everyone will have a wonderful summer and get a chance to get out and do something fun. I am going to Edisto Island the second week in June with my husband and 2 children. We will finally get to see my parents, my sister and her children. We are also going to Hilton Head Island the week of July 4th. I'm also hoping that we will get to have my son's first birthday party July 11 or 12. I can't believe he is almost a one year old. I know the summer will go by in a flash, but honestly I hope it does, because I miss being at school and teaching all the wonderful 5th graders at Aiken El. I am so excited about a new school year, and hopefully we will get back to some kind of a normal school setting.
This coming school year will be my fifth year at Aiken Elementary and my fifth year teaching 5th grade. (Lots of fiths there, lol). This will be my 13th year in education. Wow, time sure flies when you are having fun. I love teaching. Before coming to Aiken El, I previously taught 3rd grade for 2 years and 2nd grade for 6 years. I taught at North Aiken Elementary for 3 years and before that I was living and teaching in Columbia. I graduated from the University of South Carolina with a bachelor's degree in English and a Master's degree in Elementary Education. I moved to Aiken 7 years ago with my husband, Murray, my 2 dogs, Remy and Luna, and my cat, Oscar. My husband also graduated from the University of South Carolina, so we really enjoy going to all the home Gamecock football games. We also follow the baseball and basketball teams as well. GO GAMECOCKS!!! In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading, and being outdoors. The most recent new addition to my family is my sweet baby boy, Ethan, and I also have a beautiful baby girl, Kennedy, who will turn 3 the day after Christmas. Ethan will celebrate turning one July 13th. I am really looking forward to continue teaching ELA this coming fall. Can't wait to see your smiling faces soon.
