Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Caitlin Hawkins. I've taught first grade since 2018. I love teaching! I decided to become a teacher after I read to a preschool class and saw their faces light up to the story. From there, I completed my bachelor's degree in education at Freed-Hardeman University. I taught for four years at Challenger Elementary for Huntsville City Schools. I'm excited about being a Midtown Wildcat!
I'm a Madison native, and live here with my husband, Taylor, and our two dogs, Murphy and Arnold. When I'm not teaching, I'm exercising, reading, and cooking/baking. I love to travel and be outside!
My classroom thrives on daily routines. I utilize positive reinforcement, learning games, and reading and math centers to keep my students engaged. I believe that the student, parent, and teacher relationship is very important. I am always striving to be a better teacher!
