Ms. (Weber) Hutchings

Hello! My name is Jill (Weber) Hutchings. I am originally from Kansas and received my degree in Art Education in 1998 from Kansas State University (Go Wildcats!).  I began my teaching career at the middle school level in Kansas, then taught at the elementary and high school levels in Las Vegas, NV, before moving to Texas to teach at the elementary level in 2005.  I have been teaching art at Rucker Elementary since 2010 (Rucker Rocks!)

I have one son, Asher (my miracle boy!), who is getting bigger and stronger every day, despite many medical obstacles.  We are SO blessed to be a part of PISD and the Rucker Family!  

I am the Virtual Visual Elementary Arts Instructor this year for all elementary virtual learners in PISD.  Miss Vera is my teaching cohort and is teaching the in-person classes at the Rucker campus. Please reach out to either of us via email, or if you are a virtual student or parent, through my virtual office hours below. Thank you!


** Due to unforeseen circumstances, I will be on Medical Leave starting October 13.  Please contact your campus art teacher with any virtual art questions, or Ms. Vera with any questions pertaining to Rucker in-person art.  Thank you! **
