Welcome, Hillside Elementary Parents and Students!
My name is Mrs. Michenko, and I consider myself lucky to be teaching at Hillside. My teaching career as an EL teacher started in 2004, and I have been enjoying it ever since. I am licensed to teach in three states: Virginia, Maryland, and Tennessee.
I have a Bachelor of Education degree equivalent in Pedagogy/Teaching of English and German as a Foreign Language from the Sakhalin State University in Russia. I have also obtained both a Bachelor of Arts and a Master of Arts degrees from the University of Memphis in Tennessee.
Having been an English learner myself helps me to better understand and support my students' needs.
I am looking forward to working with your children this school year!
