Note from teacher

 

Hi!  My name is Mrs. Hatch.  I am going to be your teacher.  I am excited to be your teacher! This will be my ninth year of teaching.  I taught in Northern Arizona for most of my time as a teacher.  My first two years was on the Navajo reservation.  

I have a Bachelor's of Science in Cross-Categorical Special Education from the University of Arizona.  I have twenty plus years working with children and adults with special needs.  I have a passion for working in this field.  I love to see my students learn and grow in many different areas not just academics.

I am originally from upstate New York.  I grew up there and in South Eastern Arizona. I have had the opportunity to live in different parts of the country in my younger years.  I prefer the warm dry climate that we have here as to the cold wet climate.  It is nice to have the mountains here in Arizona to visit when I miss all the green trees and grass.

I can't wait to spend this year growing and learning with you.
