Hello! My name is Kara Fitzgerald and I am a Language Arts teacher at Hillview Junior High School. I love being involved in activities around campus.

I graduated Saint Mary's College of California with my BA in English with an emphasis in Education in 2010. I loved the inclusive community and educational practices so much that I attended Saint Mary's College again to earn my Single Subject Teaching Credential and my Masters of Arts in Teaching Leadership.

This is my 10th year teaching at Hillview years and love it more and more each year! When I am not on campus or preparing lessons, I enjoy my time with my family. I enjoy cooking, reading, and trying new adventures that take me out of my comfort zone.
