Yay of the Day awardee, Linda Hill of L. Douglas Wilder Middle School, receiving her swag bag.

YAY LINDA HILL! Linda Hill, assistant principal at L. Douglas Wilder Middle School, is today’s “Yay of the Day” honoree. Superintendent Amy Cashwell honored her recently at the school.

YAYWORTHY: Nominator Taylor Snow said: “She is the absolute embodiment of leadership. In my role as specialist, I find myself seeking out Ms. Hill, because the pride she has in the teachers and students at Wilder is infectious. She walks the walk and talks the talk and is enormously respected because of it.”

“She is still an English teacher at heart and having her ‘boots on the ground’ with a social studies department that is seeking to expand its role in literacy development has been a godsend. The entire social studies department at Wilder is engaged every single day in powerful literacy instruction and is a model for the rest of our division.”

Thank you for all you do, Linda Hill, to make a positive difference and move HCPS forward!
