FACULTY & STAFF
Robert Hill graduated from Dr. Martin Luther College with a degree in elementary education. He subsequently attained a Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee. He taught in Lutheran elementary, junior high and high schools. Following a five year missionary period in the Czech Republic he moved to Texas where he taught in a charter school and public schools until Living Word Academy opened in 2011. Since that time he has served as teacher and principal there.
Mr. Hill enjoys a life-long hobby of woodworking and builds Adirondack furniture in his spare time. He also enjoys hunting and fishing which he never seems to have enough time to do.
Marlene Hill graduated from Dr. Martin Luther College in New Ulm, Minnesota with a degree in elementary education. Following graduation she began teaching in Manitowoc, Wisconsin. After her second year of teaching she married Robert and they moved to Kenosha, Wisconsin where she continued teaching until the call of being home with their five children drew her to stay at home and nurture them. When the youngest started school she returned to the classroom and has been teaching again ever since.
She has had the opportunity to teach in several different schools in Wisconsin, Michigan, the Czech Republic, and now here in Texas. Living Word Academy is beginning it seventh year of existence and teaching students from first grade through high school has been a welcome challenge and learning experience. Just as we teach the students to be life-long learners, what better example can we set!
Outside the classroom Marlene enjoys walking and gardening. She has recently found joy in making personal greeting cards for all occasions.
