Dr. Kristen Hill earned her BA in English from LaGrange College and her MA and PhD from Auburn University, and she has been a member of the English faculty of Tuskegee University since 2010; her research areas include composition pedagogy, rhetorical theory, popular culture, and the horror genre.

She was fortunate to attend a Montessori school in Augusta, Georgia for kindergarten and first grade before her family moved to Germany in 1986, and that wonderful experience led her to seek out Montessori education for her son.

In her free time, Kristen enjoys running, reading, baking, watching movies, quilting, and traveling to new places on road trips with her husband, son, and stepdaughter. Her son attends Hillside Montessori and she currently serves as the Hillside Montessori PTO President.
