Ms. Kathy Tom teaches 2nd-4th grade. She teaches Science, Math, Grammar, Social Studies, Spelling, Phonics, and additional categories for individual grades. Ms.Tom has been teaching the 2-4 grades at Hillwood for around 14 years now, and turns everything that is really boring into something fun! She focuses on getting her students to their full potential. She has been here longer than most of the other teachers, and does not plan to say goodbye anytime soon. Many students adore her and have a hard time leaving and saying goodbye. She takes time with every grade and every student if they need help or don’t understand. She takes the kids' ideas and incorporates them with her work. She is native to San Francisco and is Chinese-American. When she first started teaching here, she worked with K-1st. She plays dodgeball and many other games outside.
