Mrs. Jill Greene

Hi!  You're visiting the page of the class that could prove to be your favorite in high school!  

I'm a hometown girl from Trussville.  I graduated from HT in 1988 and went on to pursue a degree in mass communications at Samford University.  I had an ambition to travel the world and report the stories from the front lines.  Then...I decided a wanted a family.  Without cell phones, laptops, wireless or even the internet, my dream of being a journalist didn't seem possible at the time.  So, like all good college students do, I changed my major and finished with a Bachelor of Arts degree with a double major in my two favorite subjects, English and psychology.  Later, I completed a master's degree in school counseling.  

I began teaching at Hewitt-Trussville Junior High School in 1993 and over the past 20+ years, I have taught in Trussville City school system and Jefferson County school system.  

I absolutely love what I do.  I love teenagers, and I am passionate about the science of psychology.  I see it as a part of everyday life.  I continuously research and read new articles related to psychology and health.  

I have a pretty cool family. I've been married to my husband Eric for over 25 years and have three kids.  Elijah is an intern for Chi Alpha campus missions at the University of Alabama.  Ethan is in Highlands College pursuing a degree in creative media. Phoebe is a 10th grader here at HTHS.
