Melissa Morris Melissa Morris, a graduate of the University of Missouri St. Louis, performed her student teaching at Hillcrest.   After graduation, she taught grades 1-3 at Hillcrest.  Melissa took the role of Principal and teacher in 2012 and is now teaching grades   5-8.  Before returning to Hillcrest, Mrs. Morris was a substitute teacher for the Pattonville school district for two years and completed an internship in Hazelwood while attending school and raising two small children.  Before that, she led the Pathfinder program at Central for six years, which is how she discovered her love for teaching and decided to pursue her degree in elementary education.
Because Mrs. Morris attended Hillcrest through her entire primary school years, she is personally invested in the vibrancy and success of Hillcrest.  She is thrilled to return to her Alma Mater as an educator to help create the scholastic and spiritual environment under which she flourished.
