About Me


Cecilia N. Sánchez Hill is a Ph.D. candidate at Texas Christian University focusing on Mexican American history in Fort Worth and also working toward a graduate certificate in Comparative Race and Ethnic Studies (CRES). She served as a member of the CRES contract team that worked with Fort Worth ISD in creating the K-12 Latina/o Studies Curriculum Guide. Prior to school at TCU, Hill taught US History and AP World History for Fort Worth ISD, served as social studies middle school specialist, and helped write the curriculum for the Latina/o Studies Elective course. After she completes her Ph.D. program, Hill hopes to continue to help secondary history teachers move beyond the traditional narrative used in history classrooms and assist these teachers in creating lessons that nurture critical-thinking skills.

In addition to completing her Ph.D., Hill is an active and founding member of HOLA Tarrant County Formed out of a desire to create a history of Latinas and Latinos in Tarrant County, The Historians Of Latino Americans (HOLA), a non-profit organization aims to research, document, and archive our work and to share it with the community. Our hope is that this information will lead to a better understanding and appreciation of the role that Latinas and Latinos have played in the civil, educational, and cultural history of our county.

Hill is also a member of the core team for The Ethnic Studies Network of Texas. The mission of the Ethnic Studies Network of Texas is to strengthen collaborations between Native American, American Indian, and Indigenous, African American and African Diaspora, Asian American and Pacific Islander, Mexican American, Chicanx, and Latinx, Middle Eastern, North African, Arab American, and other intersectional studies, including Gender and Sexuality Studies, for the purpose of promoting Ethnic Studies as a culturally and socially relevant curriculum for grades PreK-16 in the state of Texas.
