Hilton Central School Teachers Association

HCSTA     2016-17 

Our association provided White Christmas tickets to two local veterans and their guests. They also enjoyed the reception before the show put on by Hilton High School Theatre. 


Our site should be able to provide you with the Teachers' Association information that you are looking for. Private information will continue to be sent to your home email. Here are the most recent updates:

- Member Highlights shares information about White Christmas.

- Member Action Center app info to the right

- Calendar for meetings and events

Important Documents has: What is APPR (from Barb), our contract, and information about TEACH registration

- Is your birthday this month?? Here is the link to TEACH website (It would be smart to print out proof that you have done this.)

- In the works: We are working on a Teachers Sell/Give to Teachers where teachers in our district can give/sell their personal items. We may make a link to a shared document or classroom so it is easier to manage and include photos. If you know of an easy way, please pass it on to Krisann Craney.

Are you aware of something that you think our members would benefit from knowing? This includes great things that our members are doing! Please email Krisann Craney to have it added to our site.

Congratulations to Stephanie Harney on being named Hilton CSD’s 2016-17 Teacher of the Year

This year's honoree is Quest Elementary School Library Media Specialist Stephanie Harney, who is described by students and staff as creative, a good listener, passionate, and even a superhero.

Stephanie joined the Hilton School District in 1996 as a classroom teacher at Northwood Elementary School. She taught for two years in PA before returning to Hilton in 2001 as a library media specialist at Village Elementary School. In 2007, she joined the staff at Quest Elementary School because of an interest in the International Baccalaureate Programme, and a love for research and inquiry.

High School: Joelle Cain and Mike Childs

Merton Williams: Nicole Allen-Hickey and Scott Meagher

Northwood: Christine Clark and Laura Mayer
