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.

I have been teaching at Hillview for 8 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.
