Room 12 HAWKS
My name is Candy Lucas and I am very excited to be a part of the Hillside family and work with so many amazing people. I grew up in Buffalo, N.Y. and graduated from George Mason University with a B.S. degree in Early Childhood Education. I also received my Master’s degree in Elementary Education from S.U.N.Y. at Buffalo. I look forward to the 2022-23 school year as a Hillside Hawk.When I am not at Hillside I enjoy spending time with family, friends and my two children. My son is a graduate of Florida State (Go Noles) with a degree in Computer Science and my daughter is at LSU (Geaux Tigers). I love to travel, stay active, be outside, and read.
My mission as a teacher is to discover and address each child's individual needs and create an effective learning environment for all through engagement, discussion and reflection. Even though we will work hard this year, it is also important that each child has fun and learns to persevere through the challenges they encounter. I know we will have a great year together in second grade! Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you and your child as communication is a priority for me.
