Hillary Pierce

This is Hillary’s first year at Friends of Mine and she is so excited to be here!

Hillary is from Frederick, Maryland and graduated with a B.S. in Early Childhood Education from University of Maryland. After graduating in 2014 she started teaching at the Center For Young Children on campus at University of Maryland. There she taught a mixed-age class of 3 to 5 year olds for a year. With a desire to explore the world, she moved to Munich, Germany to au pair and teach at an International English preschool part time. After a year abroad, Hillary returned to the States and found Friends of Mine Preschool. Family involvement, hands on learning and positive discipline are all extremely important factors in her philosophy of education, so she was quickly drawn to the preschool and a new start in Asheville. She has extensive education from birth to age six, with classes in human development, reading comprehension, behavior management, special education and much more.

Hillary has a passion for teaching and loves what she does. She creates a positive classroom atmosphere, incorporates many different learning styles and connects with all of the children in the class. She looks forward to many years with Friends of Mine Preschool!
