Ms. Jill Hird joined Brockton School in October 2014 as Brockton’s Junior School Visual Art Specialist. She enjoys creating art with young people because they are so full of natural curiosity and creativity. Her passion for art started as a child and was particularly sparked during her term abroad in Italy studying Art History. She graduated from UBC with a Fine Arts and Family Studies degree and went on to complete her B.Ed in the Fine Arts and Media cohort. Prior to being at Brockton, Jill worked at various independent schools around Vancouver, which is where she was first introduced to the IB Program. She enjoys many things outside of school, including spending time with her two sons, dancing, hiking, and of course creating art whenever she can!
