June K. Hilton serves as a senior lecturer in the School of Educational Studies. Dr. Hilton's research centers on areas that affect student achievement, especially in science and mathematics. These areas include standards based reform, implementation of a technology plan in a high- poverty district, teacher credentialing, and gender equity issues. She teaches several of the Quantitative Methods classes in the School of Educational Studies.
Dr. Hilton has taught all levels of secondary science and mathematics at urban, public schools in both New Jersey and California, including Claremont High School. These schools have been extremely diverse with respect to culture, ethnicity, and language. She has also served as the Chair of either the Science or Mathematics Department in many of the schools where she has taught. She holds active teaching credentials in Rhode Island (Biological Science and Comprehensive Science), New Jersey (Biological Science, Comprehensive Science, and Mathematics), and California (Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Mathematics). Additionally, Dr. Hilton completed both National Board Certification in Adolescent/Young Adult Science – Physics as well CLAD trainings. She also holds active administrative credentials in New Jersey and California having served as an Assistant Principal for Grades 6-8. Currently she is the Assistant Principal of Curriculum and Instruction at Claremont High School, a position she has held since 2007.
Dr. Hilton is very interested in the effects of technology integration on student achievement. She believes that by providing educators with concrete and meaningful ways to integrate technology into lessons (e.g., hand-held computers, web-based tools, etc), allows them to address the many ways in which students learn. Dr. Hilton also believes that a student must not be hindered in learning simply because of gender or culture. Technology provides another approach to increase the success rate for all students.
