Anna Pillow – Lead Inclusion Teacher 4-5th Grade


Mrs. Pillow is married to her husband Jim and has 4 children. She loves to get lost in a book any day and she also loves running, cooking, and shopping.
She loves to teach and especially at a Christ-centered school. This is her first year at TFH. She goes the extra-mile with being prepared for students each day. She brings lots of professional and personal experience to our special needs program.


A Note from Sarah Donovan, Principal Extended Educational Programs
It is such a gift to visit The First Hope, The Classical School, and The Early Learning Center classrooms. Our amazing staff have already begun building strong relationships with our students and setting the pace for a year of growth. There are smiles, laughter, and learning all around!
On Thursday, September 3rd, I am hosting a ‘Coffee with the Principal’ at 8:15-9:00AM. It is being held in the E2 building in room 225, which is located in The Classical School. I welcome all Extended Educational Program parents to join me in kicking off the school year and spending time getting to know one another. I hope to see you there!

We have completed a little over 2 weeks of school and we are enjoying getting to know your students. We have welcomed a new student in our program Caelum. He is a smart Kindergartner and loves to keep us on our toes. We are blessed to have him a part of our program. We also had a great time with our Mom’s Fellowship Group this past Tuesday. This is our 5th year doing this and we enjoy each others stories and encouragement on this journey. Moms I admire all that you do everyday to help your kids grow. -Patty Myers
