Rebecca Mulvihill, a new math teacher at Hillsborough High School, is the new talk around school. Graduating from Rutgers University with both a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree, Mulvihill received her B.A. in mathematics with a minor in Statistics prior to earning her Ed.M. in Mathematics Education. Prior to coming to Hillsborough, she student taught at Hackettstown High School. Hearing great things about the Hillsborough school district is what attracted Mulvihill to teach at HHS. She thought it would be a great fit for her career, and is already loving it!

Being her first year teaching there are definitely some challenges she has faced, but that is just like any new teacher adjusting to a new high school.

“The biggest challenges I face include adjusting from a student college schedule to a full time work schedule and balancing the immense workload,” Mulvihill said. “In my entire life, I have never been so busy! No one could ever imagine, unless experienced themselves, the stress/work level of a first year teacher, teaching a course they’ve never taught before.”

It is so interesting to hear the perspective from a teacher right out of college. Teaching high school students is definitely a challenge for any teacher no matter how experienced. However, she seems to handle it just fine, and knows exactly what she is doing.

Teaching both college prep and honors math classes is an amazing beginning for her teaching career. Mulvihill is so sweet and great at working with her students. Talking with other students in her classes, she is always available after school for help and will work with students any time they need. She wants the best for everybody, and wants everyone to succeed.

Mulvihill wants to make a difference in students’ lives and help impact their futures by being a great role model. She also enjoys building connections with students, parents, and other teachers. Her enthusiastic energy is what her students love about her, in addition to her intelligence. Mulvihill is also looking forward to further her experience and getting her Master’s in Applied Math.

Mulvihill is on a great start and is very liked by her peers and students. She loves everything about teaching, educating, and working at Hillsborough High School.

“The sense of energy and community in this school is unlike any I’ve ever seen or felt,” Mulvihill said. ” I’m surrounded by amazing students who are always willing to learn and extremely supportive teachers who are always willing to help.”
