Middle School Humanities
In one sense, Hilary Huse is local, having grown up in Falls Church, receiving her Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Virginia, and earning a Master of Science in Education from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. In another way, Mrs. Huse has been anything but local. As the daughter of a father in the Foreign Service, she has spent time in places as diverse as the Philippines, Korea, Barbados, and Haiti.
Beginning in high school, Mrs. Huse began working in schools through the Madeira Co-Curriculum Program. She has subsequently taught a variety of elementary grades over the course of the fourteen years that she spent at Burgundy Farm Country Day School in Alexandria, where she enjoyed team teaching as much as she loved interacting with the students. After taking some time off from teaching to be with her son Graham and her daughter Margaret during their earliest years, Mrs. Huse returned to her teaching career in 2010 joining the faculty of Green Hedges in Grade 2 and in Grade 3. Currently she is a Middle School Humanities teacher and chair of the Social Studies Department.
Mrs. Huse met her husband, Todd, through their mutual involvement in theater. They both still enjoy their theater life, juggling schedules in order to be home with children at night and at the performance venue.
