Mr. Kris Hawkins

Hey there Panther Parents!

I am beyond excited to have the opportunity to work with your students this year! I hope that along the way we can work as collaborators with the aim of cultivating the best educational experience possible for your student. I wear a few hats at Schimelpfenig: I teach 7th grade Special Education English/Language Arts/Reading (ELAR), Multisensory Reading for 6th grade, and I also case manage a number of our Special Education students.

My ethos as a teacher is simple: I'm here to care, and I care to serve. As a professional educator, I serve my students in the classroom as a teacher and role model, while outside the classroom I serve their parents as a collaborator and guide for the educational process. What I love most as a teacher, and as a person, is growth. I want to see your students succeed, to embody their potential, to go on from my instruction to live meaningful and satisfying lives.

I can't wait to start on this journey of learning and discovery with your students, and in partnership with you. Here's to an excellent year!
