Mrs. Hiwote Sahilu

1st Grade Teacher


I am very excited to be a first grade teacher at Queen of Apostles School. I taught preschool for many years, including St. Gabriel’s. I joined Queen of Apostles in 2013 as a Kindergarten instructional assistant. I worked as Kindergarten instructional for four years. Within the four years I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood & Social Work for Diverse Learners at George Mason University. Also, recently I received my Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction, Early Childhood for Diverse Learners (MED) at George Mason University.

I believe teaching requires a gift from God, a passion for children and a deep dedication to all learners’ success. Working with young children over the years has given me that strong passion. I am very happy and blessed to work at Queen of Apostles School.My husband and I have two beautiful kids, Yeabsera and Bemnet. They have been at Queen of Apostles School since kindergarten. They grew in their faith and gained solid knowledge from their wonderful teachers. We are happy to be a part of Queen of Apostles.
