Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Jill Hubbard

I am a proud product of Decatur Public Schools. My husband and I both attended Dennis Elementary, Johns Hill Middle School, and graduated from MacArthur High School. I received my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education at the University of Illinois and my Master's in Education at Eastern Illinois University. This is my twenty-seventh year in education and my sixteenth year in Decatur Montessori public education. 

My daughter is currently an 8th grader here at Montessori Academy for Peace and my son attended Garfield Montessori Magnet School from PreK through 8th grade. He is now a freshman in Atmospheric Science at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana.

I have seen the power of an accessible, public Montessori education as both a parent and educator.
