Mrs. Teresita Higginbottom
Hello, my name is Teresita Higginbottom and I will be your child's first-grade teacher this year! I can't wait to learn all about your child, but first, let me share a little about me.
This is my 5th year at Wilkinson Early Childhood Center and I love teaching young learners! I graduated from The University of Phoenix with a degree in Elementary Education and a certification in grades 1-6 and certification for grades 6-12. I am currently finishing up my Masters in Elementary Education and have recently been certified as a Reading Specialist for K-12. Teaching and learning new things is a serious passion for me.
I've been married for well over twenty years to a hard-working Union Iron Worker, and we have two sons Marcus (30) and Shelton (28). Neither are married or have made me a "glamma" yet. I enjoy learning new things and spending time with family and friends.
I have two girlfriends that I've been friends with for 40 years. When not working with students or spending time with family, I like to meditate or journal to be at peace with myself. I know this year will be like nothing any of us have experienced before, but I promise if you hang in there with me we will get through it and our students will be successful. I am always open to discussion should you have any questions or concerns. First Grade ROCKS!!!
Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns
