About the Teacher


Hi! My name is Mrs. Hawkins and I will be your child’s Early 5’s teacher this school year. This is my 
fourth year teaching at Turrill. I have taught Kindergarten and Early 5’s at Turrill. I am very excited for all the fun, learning and exploring we will have this year! I will soon be getting to know you and your children; here is a little background on me.

         I went to college at Oakland University were I earned my Elementary Education degree with a major in Language Arts. After I graduated, I had long-term substitute positions in fifth grade and kindergarten. I really enjoyed working with kindergarteners so much that I decided to go back to school and receive my Early Childhood and Special Education endorsement. I began teaching in Lapeer in 2012. I am excited to continue to teach at Turrill and be a part of the year round program! 

         I am eager to begin the school year, to get to know your children and to spend the next year helping your children to learn and grow. Early 5’s will be full of many firsts and I am honored to be able to guide them in their educational journey. If you would like to contact me, my email is ehawkins@lapeerschools.org and my school phone # is 810-667-2438 ext. 4523.  I look forward to meeting all of you and thank you in advance for your support!
