Hi! My name is Mrs. Hawkins, and I am so excited to be your math teacher this year! This year begins my eleventh year of teaching; I spent three years teaching middle school math in Evansville and am beginning my eighth year at CSMS as an eighth-grade math teacher. I am proud to be part of the Dragon family! I earned my Bachelor's degree in Mathematics Teaching from USI in 2012 and my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction from WGU in 2017. I truly enjoy helping my students learn, grow, and ultimately realize they CAN excel at mathematics. I cannot wait to meet and work with you this year!

What mindset do you normally have? How does it affect you?
Think about a situation where you had a fixed mindset. How would things have been different if you had a growth mindset instead? How can you change your mindset?
