Heather Phillips, 1st
Hi! My name is Heather
Phillips and I am thrilled to be joining the Huntley Hills family this year as
a first grade teacher! I am originally from a small town in south Georgia, but
lived in Athens the past five years. I have known that I wanted to teach for as
long as I can remember, and it is easily my greatest passion (followed closely
by the beach, ice cream, and Georgia Bulldogs!). I graduated from the
University of Georgia with both a Bachelors and Masters degree in Early
Childhood Education last year. During graduate school I obtained my Reading
Endorsement and am currently pursing my Gifted Endorsement, as well. In college
I was able to work with some of the most incredible educators, but I am beyond
thrilled to finally have a classroom of my own! I have looked forward to this
year for a long time, and I cannot wait to meet and be a part of the Huntley

Delaney Bush, 1st and 2nd
I am Delaney Bush, from the beautiful Bluegrass state – Go Cats! I came to Georgia to attend Oglethorpe University where I graduated with honors in business and education. After a short time working in human resources, I returned to my true passion – working with children – and became a nanny. I am thrilled to be starting my teaching career at Huntley Hills as a Montessori teacher. I was fortunate to attend a Montessori School and give it credit for my curiosity, persistence, and love of learning. I am so excited to provide that same experience for others. In my spare time, I enjoy following the Kentucky Wildcats and the Pittsburg Steelers. I also engage in a wide range of art projects and love to play with my cat, Eclipse. I am excited to become part of the school community!

Greetings Huntley Hills
Family! My name is Camille Harvey and I will be joining the Huntley Hills

the window for me to teach Pre-K, Kindergarten, first, second, and third
grades. I received my Masters of Education in Reading Instruction from Walden
University. I am excited to begin this new journey with the Huntley Hills
