My name is La'Kisha Hawkins, and I'm really excited to be teaching 4th grade Reading, English Language Arts, and Social Studies to all of the amazing 4th graders in my classes. I am an experienced teacher with 17 years of teaching and leading experience. Teaching is a passion that was discovered as a result of becoming a parent and teaching my own children when they were younger. As a young child, I struggled with reading and had a hard time keeping up with my work. Thankfully I met a teacher that went the extra mile to teach me how to read and encouraged me to always do my best. That is what I hope to be to each and everyone of my students- a teacher that cares and will go the extra mile to help you do 'your' best!
