Davidson Alumna Working Toward Space Travel

Jillian Yuricich has dreamed of going to space since she was five years old. The Davidson alumna is currently studying to be an aerospace engineer at The Ohio State University. She has had internships with Rolls Royce, NASA and the U.S. Naval Air Systems Command in southern Maryland.

Yuricich says, “the first time I was exposed to outer space was in our first grade solar system curriculum. I was at Norwich with Mrs. Wittig and I asked her if we could go “there”, to space. She said that you could, but you have to be an astronaut. From then on, I had no problem telling people what I wanted to be when I grew up.”

She talks about how her TARGET, FOCUS, advanced math and science classes here in Hilliard gave her the tools to keep challenging herself. “It was a good habit to make at such a young age. And I have Hilliard City Schools to thank deeply for that.” You can read more about this amazing Hilliard grad in an article in Buckeye Voices.

Blended Learning Lessons for Teachers

In Hilliard City Schools, we believe that blended learning should create an environment where students and teachers learn and teach more effectively. In order to have a successful roll out of our One2One program our teachers have been spending time in the classrooms. They are learning best practices for using iPads in classes for instruction every day. Empowering teachers to be the best they can be creates environments for our students to become Ready for Tomorrow.

Global Cardboard Challenge at Darby Creek

The students in Mrs. Z’s classroom took cardboard to a new level. Each student was challenged to create their own game using their imagination, cardboard, and other recyclable items. The outcome was a room full of carnival style games that brought excitement to staff and students as each class had the opportunity to stop by and test their skills. Game themes included Angry Birds, Egg Toss, Basketball, Table Tennis, Soccer, Army Tank Maze, Ball Toss, and Minecraft, just to name a few. Each game was a penny to play and the pennies were then donated to charity. Empowering students to find their creativity prepares them to be Ready for Tomorrow.
