About MeName: Hilary MapsonSchool: Upper Merion High SchoolRoom No.: E112Position: Math Teacher
My name is Mrs. Mapson and this is my fifth year teaching at Upper Merion High School. I will be teaching College Prep and Honors Algebra II this school year as well as AP Calculus BC. I am also the assistant cross country coach.
Prior to teaching at UMHS, I taught for three years in Maryland. I received my Bachelors of Science in Mathematics and my secondary education license from Albright College. I also have a MS in Educational Innovation and Technology with a specialization in the 1:1 classroom environment through Capella University.
I love to run and spend my weekends training for endurance events. I have completed 3 marathons, roughly a dozen half marathons, and a trail 50k. I am currently training for my second 50k trail race, which will take place in October.
In my free time, I enjoy reading and try to read a bit every day and love to get book suggestions from my students. I spent all of my free time this summer reading and have read over 40 books since the end of last school year!
This summer I spent a lot of time hanging out with our two rescue dogs. We have a boxer/hound mix named Lincoln and a cattle dog mix named Tofu. We spent the heat waves this summer curled up inside reading and I'm going to miss relaxing with them every day.
Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns you have. I’m looking forward to getting to know all of my students and having a great year back in-person at UMHS!
