Mrs. Hackman

Hi! My name is Jill Hackman and I am one of the Teachers of the Visually Impaired for Macon Piatt Special Education. I have been working at Harris Elementary School for 15 years. The vision room is located in Room 2. I work at many other schools throughout Macon and Piatt County as well.


I believe that we all need to be the change that we want to see in the world. I enjoy working with children and helping them reach potential through their education.  I believe every child should be valued and treated with respect.


I am originally from Farmer City, Illinois. I received my Bachelor's of Science Degree in Special Education visual impairments from Illinois State University in Normal, Illinois. I received my Master's of Education Degree in Teacher Leadership-Administration from University of Illinois-Springfield. I live in Champaign, Illinois with my husband Paul and our children, Rileigh and Zander. We also have two beloved cats Milky Way and Peanut.
