Melissa Hill

I am one of two AIG specialists at Koontz Intermediate. I am here five days a week, and Amy Romagnuolo is here on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We both teach 5th and 6th graders.

Prior to working at Koontz, I taught for 16 years at another wonderful school in Buncombe county, Fairview Elementary. During my years at Fairview I taught third, fourth, and fifth grades as a regular classroom teacher.

I received my B.S.Ed. in Elementary Education  from Western Carolina University (1998). I completed the coursework for an Academically/Intellectually Gifted license from Mars Hill University (2013) and am currently working on a master’s degree in Gifted Education from UNC-Charlotte. I am also licensed in Middle Grades English/Language Arts (2014) and National Board certified as a Middle Childhood Generalist (2005).

I enjoy working with AIG students and look forward to a great year of challenge and discovery. Check out the links here on my website, and if you have any questions or concerns whatsoever please email me (melissa.hill@bcsemail.org) or call me at the school (684-1295).
