Blue Tent Instructors

Bekah Hilton

Biology and AP Biology Instructor


Bekah Hilton is a big fan of learning "how things work.” She was homeschooled K-to-12 by a mathematician and an engineer, so she learned to always question the “how” and “why” of nature and its processes. She carried that interest into Campbell University’s science department, where she obtained a B.S. in Biology and a minor in Chemistry, and where she held student jobs in various Biology and Chemistry courses.


During her final year at Campbell University, she took a student job in the library and decided to pursue graduate school for Library Sciences--a beautiful combination of technology, education, and community outreach. Working in the Wake County Public Libraries, she has applied her love of teaching and communication to create fun and educational STEM programs for school-age youth and teens in her community.


Bekah loves coming alongside others as they strive to learn--especially in the sciences. She is especially passionate about utilizing new technologies to assist in the learning process--and she's excited to employ both live and text-based group discussions and the Socratic method to help her students achieve academic success in the sciences in a fun and community-focused way.


Bekah is married to her best friend Jacob (who was also homeschooled), and together they rescued a precious pupper named Peanut. Bekah loves watching science happen in real-time through gardening, baking, and cheesemaking, and she also loves to camp and hike with her little family of three.
