Welcome to Hillsdale!

What an exciting community project we have started here on The Hill.  This school is truly one of the first to demonstrate what "It Takes a Village to Raise a Child" really looks like in the educational realm.  I am so blessed to be a part of this wonderful community project, and I am thrilled that you are now a part of our second year on this journey, too. 

I am so excited to see the progress of our new Y (opening in May 2018) and park (opening October 2017) as we work alongside staff, parents and students to make this community-partner based school a new model of excellence for our young people.  Over the past 17 years, as an administrator in the West Ada School District,  I have established some wonderful connections with families and students in our school district.  For those of you who have just moved into our area, I will let you in on some personal information.

As a graduate of Boise State University (M.S. Exercise Science) and the University of Idaho (Ed. S., Educational Leadership), I have been in education for over 20 years, and have been an administrator at both the middle school and elementary level. I was able to celebrate with students last year as I obtained my Ph.D. in Educational Leadership through NNU (some students call me Dr. Bair, but I tell them I can't fix a broken arm--I can only 'consider it' as I am a doctor of philosophy).  :)  
My husband and I celebrated our 25th anniversary this summer and have four wonderful daughters and eight grandchildren.  We recently moved due to the boundary changes in West Ada, so our youngest could continue at MVHS....Go Mavs!
I do what I love....and I love what I do! 
I hope you always feel welcome at the doors of our school, and please feel free to stop by or contact me at any time as we build this new partnership in education for the 21st Century--together!
