November 3, 1950
I am currently an Instructor in the Teacher Education Program at Bridgewater College. In June, 2012, I retired from being Director of Math and Technology for Rockingham County Public Schools, a position I held for 23 years. I joined the Teacher Education Program faculty of Bridgewater College in August, 2012. I will retire from this position after the 2016-17 school year.
Mathematics education and the integration of technology into instruction.

As of April, 2016, I have a Flickr website that has over 23,000 pictures of family, all arranged by date and event. To view this site, you must get an invitation from me via Flickr and you must obtain a (free) Flickr account. If you will send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org I will send you this invitation. Nearly all of these pictures are in the 2000 – 2017 time frame. I am gradually transitioning from my previous website (http://webfc.rockingham.k12.va.us/~jhill) to this Flickr site. The pictures are much easier to view on the Flickr site.

I have worked in the field of Education for over 44 years, including 17 as a classroom teacher and 23 as a Supervisor/Director of Math & Technology. I taught at Morgantown High School, Morgantown WV for 9 years, at Turner Ashby High School, Rockingham County, for 2 years, then at Fort Defiance High School, Augusta County, for 6 years. I came to Rockingham County as Supervisor of Math and Technology in 1989 and retired as Director of Math and Technology on June 30, 2012. After being an adjunct instructor at Bridgewater College for 17 years, I became a full time instructor in the Teacher Education Program in fall, 2012.
Lynn and I are very much enjoying our empty nest. We enjoy eating out, watching tv together, riding bicycles (click here to see a list of over 50 bike trails we have ridden on), and taking some great trips. But nothing makes us happier than to see our children and grandchildren. Lynn will retire from her job as an ELL teacher with Rockingham County Public Schools after the 2016-17 school year, too.
