If you haven’t had a chance to meet Mr. Higby in class, here’s your shot. We want to welcome Mr. Higby to SVHS as our new math teacher coming to us from Riverton High School.
You may be thinking, huhm. Higby sounds awfully familiar. You're right. Mr. Higby is the husband of Mrs. Higby from our very own middle school.
Mr. Higby grew up in Bloomington, IL and attended Bloomington High School. After high school, He went to Eastern Illinois University where he earned his Bachelors in Math Education. While teaching, he earned his Masters in Teacher Leadership from University of Illinois at Springfield. Mr. Higby also taught Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Geometry, Precalculus and AP Calculus AB at Riverton High School and we are glad to have him as our newest member of our community.
When asked about how his year and new school was going, he replied "SVHS has been great. The staff has been extremely welcoming and someone is always around to see if they can help me.”
Welcome to the Valley Mr. Higby. We are glad to have you around.
