Jill de Ligt

 I was born in Charlotte, NC and moved to Burlington at the age of 3.  So I consider Burlington my home town.  I attended Eastlawn Elementary, Broadview Middle, Sellars-Gunn (9th grade), and Cummings High (graduated 1981!).  After graduating from high school, I worked various jobs and completed several classes at ACC.  I enrolled at Elon and graduated in the spring of 1995.

I started working at Hillcrest in the fall of 1995.  Being part of the Hillcrest family has been one of the biggest honors I have ever experienced.  I have taught in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade. 
In 2001 I married my husband and moved to the Graham area.  We have 3 dogs, Jack, Foxie, and Tucker.  Wouter was originally a citizen from the Netherlands.  He became a U.S. citizen in March 2014!  We enjoy working in our yard, and visiting new and interesting places, especially in NC.
