Meet the Principal

Headshot of Hillman Principal Carolyn Kloss

"I Believe In YOU!"

That's how we start each and every day at Hillman Elementary School! We believe in ourselves! We believe in each other! We believe in our school! 

I have been the proud principal of Hillman for 15 years. I have been working as a teacher and administrator for over 31 years. I am a product of Rockford Public Schools graduating from Jefferson High School in 1986. My two college-aged kids also attended Rockford Public Schools and both graduated from Auburn High School. They are both now away from home attending universities in Montana and Wisconsin. 

I am honored each day to work alongside an amazing group of educators at Hillman. We focus on Positive Supports for students as well as fostering a Growth Mindset in our students and staff. The Hillman staff is truly a team who cares about kids. At Hillman we Build Relationships and Grow Learners Every DayCome visit us! I believe it's a great place to be!
