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 myself.
This is my 8th 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 certified in grades 1-6 as well as a certification for grades 6-12.  I have a Masters in Elementary Education and I am 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 (32) and Shelton (30). 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 memorable and I promise if you hang in there with me we will achieve great success. 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
