Mrs. Jill Williams

I am excited to return to HAIS as the Teacher Specialist and Title I Coordinator for the 2020-2021 school year. I will also be teaching Principles of Government and Public Policy, Dimensions of Diplomacy, and Model United Nations.  This is my second year at the Houston Academy for International Studies, and I have worked in Houston ISD since 2005. During my educational career, I have served many campuses across our district including Chavez High School, Sharpstown International School, DeBakey High School for Health Professions, and Lovett Elementary. In addition, I was a Teacher Development Specialist for the Houston ISD Secondary Social Studies Department. I was also fortunate enough to teach in Oxfordshire when my husband's career took us to the United Kingdom!

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time traveling, SCUBA diving, listening to live music, and watching college football...GIG'EM AGGIES...and West Ham United...GO HAMMERS! My husband and I are proud parents of our two children and two dogs.
