Hi there! My name is Mrs. Hilario. I have been teaching at Rancho Mirage High School since 2016! There is nothing better than teaching our future grown-ups and working with the incredible staff at RMHS. I have found my belonging and absolutely love my friends and family that I have here.
At RMHS, I am the mild/moderate special education science teacher, union representative, academic tester, GSA Club Advisor, Best Buddies International Club Advisor, and member of the esteemed football chain gang!
At home, I am a proud wife and mother of a fierce Marine daughter, a proud Army son, and two wonderfully talented daughters still in high-school. I am also the lucky human to 2 cats and 4 poison-dart frogs.
In the evening, I teach a Kinesiology dance class at Crafton Hills College and am working on my Doctorate of Special Education at NorthCentral University.
I am a fierce advocate of disability and LGBTQIA+ rights and am active in the California Teacher's Association as a:
State Council Member
NEA Representative Assembly Delegate
Pacific Asian American Caucus Member
LGBTQIA+ Caucus Member
CEEC Caucus for Educators of Exceptional Children
