Beverly “Sue” Hill is the Outstanding Student in the Reading Specialization program for 2015.

Having enrolled in Hood’s Reading Specialization program in 2010, Sue completed her Master’s degree in May 2015 with a 3.97 GPA. In addition, she holds a M.Ed in Educational Administration from the University of Texas.  Sue served as a middle school teacher at the Arkansas School for the Deaf and a high school teacher at the Louisiana School for the Deaf.  She became the elementary reading specialist at the Maryland School for the Deaf (MSD) in 2005 and in 2013 was promoted to assistant principal of the Elementary Department. 

The two MSD students Sue taught during the Hood College Reading Clinic made significant progress. Now, thanks to the generosity of the Delaplaine Foundation, the clinic has become a professional development site where MSD teachers learn under Sue’s guidance.
