Mr. Williamson

My name is Daniel Williamson, and I attended Raleigh Christian Academy for all of my elementary and secondary education, graduating in the spring of 2000.  It was at RCA that I accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as my savior at the age of six.  I attended Southeastern Free Will Baptist College, earning a degree in elementary education with a focus on math.  After graduating in 2004, the Lord led me to Hilltop Christian School, where I have taught 5th grade for fourteen years.  I love Christian education and have been blessed to teach here at HCS.

I married my beautiful wife Kristin in June of 2009, and have been blessed with two beautiful girls, Eva and Eden. We are expecting our son, Eli, to arrive in early September.  As a parent, I understand the care and concern you have with your child’s education.  Thank you for trusting me and HCS with this important task.  If there is ever anything I can help with, do not hesitate to contact me.  Please keep me and our class in your prayers all through the year.

Welcome to Fifth Grade!

I am looking forward to a great school year!

 

Welcome to 5th Grade! We are looking forward to a great year.  This year, we will be team teaching a few classes.  I will be teaching all 5th graders Math and History.  Mrs. Jennifer Cooper will be teaching Language and Science.  We will both teach our respective classes Bible, Spelling, Reading, and Penmanship.  Hopefully this will help you if you have a specific question concerning one of these subjects.  Please feel free to contact us; we are here to help!

Educational Games and Websites

Most kids enjoy playing computer games and are drawn to them by their vibrant colors, fun music or sounds and the idea of getting responses at the click of a button .  Below is a list of fun free educational websites that can be used to enhance your child’s learning skills.
