Howard County Public School System
When your math students regularly earn perhaps the highest scores on calculus tests in high-achieving Howard County, you know you’re doing something right as a teacher.
But for Jennieve M. Hill, a math teacher at Wilde Lake High in Columbia, that’s just part of her record of success.
Hill earned a full scholarship at Towson University in secondary mathematics education and a coveted national certification as a math teacher on her first try. She was invited to be a grader for AP Calculus Exams the past four years, won an award for Excellence in Gifted and Talented Teaching from Howard County and was nominated twice for a presidential award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching.
At Wilde Lake, she started the school’s chapter of Mu Alpha Theta (National Math Honor Society) and established a peer tutoring program between Wilde Lake and its two feeder schools, Harper’s Choice and Wilde Lake middle schools.
You could say she’s good at what she does.
“I am a passionate mathematics teacher,” Hill said. “I have been able to transfer students who self-proclaim as ‘being bad at math’ or ‘not liking math’ to major in mathematics and engineering. The number of lives I have inspired knows no bounds.”
