• My name is Kristen Hilderbrand. I have lived in Clover for 9 years now and absolutely love it here. I grew up in Northeastern Ohio and lived there for 26 years. That is where I started my teaching career in Special Education. I married my husband, Jon, in July of 2002 and moved to Charlotte in August of 2002. I taught 5th grade elementary and gifted in Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools until April of 2006. At that point, I took a break from teaching to be a stay at home mom to my two amazing little boys, Gavin and Gage. Gavin is in 3rd grade and Gage is in 1st grade at Bethel Elementary. I started back teaching part-time for the 2013-2014 school year here at Larne and am thrilled that I have returned back to full-time this year. I am so grateful to be a part of this journey with your children.
