Jean F. Hill

Adjunct Instructor

Jean Hill has been an adjunct teacher education instructor at St. Gregory’s since the fall of 2004. With 33 years of classroom experience in several Oklahoma Public Schools, she has taught Pre-K, elementary, middle, and secondary level students in various capacities including self-contained, departmentalized, and Title I Reading Specialist instructional areas. She is a member Oklahoma Education Association, Oklahoma Reading Association, Oklahoma Higher Education Reading Council, and the International Reading Association.

As an educator, parent and grandparent she is passionate about reading instruction. She firmly believes that the parent is the child's first and foremost teacher. She strives to train preservice teachers to understand and utilize the principles and strategies of reading research and instruction in a meaningful way.

By maintaining rapport with students, former educators and those educators who are currently in the classroom, she stays informed and understands current effective practices in the field of education. Emphasis is placed on the five major components of reading instruction, modeling reading, and sustained silent reading and read-aloud to encourage the child to develop the skill and love of reading across all genres.
