About Dr. Margaret Hill (1940 – 2021)

Dr. Margaret Hill was a force of nature. Like an overflowing river, she moved into our school district in 1971 and forever changed the landscape. In a city experiencing poverty and decline, she had a way of making everyone she talked to feel like they mattered, and to her, they did. Her commitment to the city’s children and youth was unwavering. She started as a teacher in the District and for the last 16 years of her tenure, she was the principal at San Andreas High School.

Exceptional emotional intelligence was her superpower, but don’t mistake her empathy for acceptance of mediocrity. She wanted the best for and from her students and community. Even in retirement, she was non-stoppin’, working first for the county schools and then joining the SBCUSD board of education. As a member of Board of Education, she was a part of a District turnaround that garnered national attention and recognition. Margaret Hill was the heart of the Board and the soul of the District. When her flood waters ultimately receded, she left us better people, a better organization, and a better community.
