Long-time student Maggie Hill was a constant and cherished face at the Eliot School for over four decades. She took her first class at the age of 27, when she had just started her lifetime career as a teacher in the Boston Public Schools, and continued with very few breaks until the age of 73. Throughout, she was active in her church and neighborhood, participating in missionary travels to Haiti and establishing a community garden.
“Oh, the fun and laughs that we’ve have had! The Eliot School is like my therapy. I look forward to class each week. It’s a peaceful experience to create something with your hands but I also enjoy the conversations. It’s a good group and you can always count on people to look out for you.”
