Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Deidra Hiltner, and I am an Eden Valley-Watkins graduate, class of 2000. I live in Eden Valley with my husband and our four children. I graduated from St. Cloud State with a degree in Environmental Studies and Biology. I then earned a Graduate Teaching License from The College of St. Scholastica in Elementary Education and 5-8 Science. From there, I earned a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. As of today, I am finishing up an additional Master's Degree in Special Education.
I have cherished the past 13 years teaching in elementary through senior high classrooms. While science has always been a strong interest, a passion for reading instruction has grown in me over the years. It is a fantastic sight to watch a child grow in confidence when given the tools needed to make academic gains in reading.
In my "free time," I enjoy gardening and cooking. As a family, we spend our time camping, fishing, trap shooting, and playing cards. The kids keep us busy with many sports, including volleyball, basketball, softball, trap, soccer, and track.
