Mr. Hiser is student-centered and is thrilled at the opportunity to watch the continuation of student’s elementary foundation into their years at South Valley Middle School! He continually seeks out ways to support teachers and enjoys seeing them praised for their endless efforts!
In Mr. Hiser’s spare time, he enjoys spending time with his wife and raising their two beautiful daughters; Kate (6), and Elsie (3). The Hisers love anything outside, anything “local sports”, and anything that involves learning.
