Mrs. Susan Hillegass

I am Mrs. Susan Hillegass and teacher of the second grade. My education includes a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education from Kutztown University, Pennsylvania Teacher Certification, Wilson Reading Program Certificate, participation in three Catholic Classical Summer Conferences and attendance at numerous education workshops.

This is my sixth year teaching here at St. John the Baptist. I have also taught at my home parish, St. Philip Neri, for eleven years in grade 2 and the third grade for six years. Also, I acted as Coordinator for Religious Education there for several years.

Fostering a love for God and His Church as well as preparing the children for the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist that they receive during their second grade year is an awesome responsibility. It gives me much pleasure helping each individual student grow in their God-given talents and learn how to know, love and serve the Lord in their journey to heaven.

In my free time I enjoy walking, reading, spending time with my grandchildren, family and friends, and traveling especially to the shore.
