Marcia Seabury


A wonderfully diverse group of students. It's great to see Hillyer students' growth in skills and confidence, as they find they can do well. I like working with them wherever they are and helping to take them further (small classes and time for one-on-one work are a big plus toward this goal). And then it's great to see them go on to successes in their studies and careers.
