Hillary Wackman

Hillary Wackman teaches English  in the Rose House and coordinates the SES AVID program. She loves the integrated nature of the SES curriculum and relishes examining important questions in a quest to live responsibly on our planet. Previously she worked for the Minnesota Historical Society.  A graduate of the University of Saint Thomas with an Ed. M. from Harvard University, she recently completed a certificate in “Culturally Responsive Teaching” through the University of Saint Mary’s. When not at SES, you can find her reading, walking her Springer Spaniel or canoeing with her husband and two daughters on their annual Boundary Waters trip. She feels lucky to work at a unique school, close to nature, with students who are brave enough to choose the road “less traveled by.”
