Miss D. HUTCHINS
As an educator, my aim is to do the very best I can to see to it that all my students BELIEVE and KNOW they can be high achievers through persistency and hard work!
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME!!!
As a child, my family instilled in me, the importance of learning and validating education. With this being said, I learned to love school so much!!! I was concidered an Over Achiever!!! My favorite subjects are Science and Creative Writing! I am a mom of two wonderful boys, whom I love very much and would do what ever it takes to see they grow to be determined and positive individuals as well as hard working and responsible citizens.
I have been a teacher for the St. Louis Public School District for 19 years. I have a Bachelors in Elementary Education with a Minor in English. I continued my education, receiving a Masters in Administration followed by a certification in Reading Specialty. I was given the honors of teaching grades 1 and 3 and now I currently teach a FANTASTIC FOURTH GRADE TEAM of Mathmeticians...
My approach is to examine each child individually, exploring their interests, concerns, needs and abilities. While working with students, I use a variety of educational lessons and methods to encourage student engagement. My students receive Direct Instructed Lessons allowing them to see STEP BY STEP instructions,hands on activities and Cooperative Learning. Students are given an opportuinity to share their talents through Science, auditory, visual and artisitc learning styles. Through the years of teaching and working with my students using my approach, we were honored 3 times for being Science Fair Divisional Winners for the ST. Louis Public School District and awarded 2011 TEACHER OF EXCELLENCE AWARD!
I believe all children can learn. Learning extends far beyond the walls of a classroom, spilling out into the community. ENCOURAGING students so they may have confidence in themselves and PRAISING so they may learn to appreciate, will allow for a LOVE of LEARNING,however it is how far we as educators, parents, teachers, leaders and the community are willing to give of ourselves to help motivate and gear our students toward this goal. As a teacher, MY OATH, MY PROMISE is to always to perform excellence in education and be the very best when it comes to equally educating every student or child that may cross my path.
