Hillary began her teaching career in 2003 after completing her teacher training at the Faculty of Education, University of Cambridge, England. Taking on the role of English teacher at the UK's historic King's Ely School (founded in 970 AD) allowed Hillary to bring her passion to the classroom every day, inspiring students to fall in love with reading and writing.
Moving to the U.S. in 2006, Hillary became a literacy coach and gifted education coordinator for students in grades 4-12. Working as an instructional coach led her to become a sought-after professional development presenter and literacy consultant, training thousands of teachers in Reading and Writing instruction.
After becoming a mother in 2011, she saw firsthand how authentic, individualized learning happens every day in the home. She became committed to fostering her children's natural love of learning through her unique approach to home-schooling: a life built around simple, little learning moments every day.
