Teacher of the Year

Bonnie Hawkins, E. W. Wyatt’s Teacher of the Year, is a sixth grade math teacher.  Mrs. Hawkins has served Greensville County Public Schools for eight years.  With teaching certifications in elementary and exceptional education, she has 14 years of experience, and is currently Wyatt’s Math Lead Teacher.  She received her Bachelors in Elementary Education from State University of New York (SUNY) – Fredonia and her Masters in Special Education at SUNY – Buffalo State. 

As stated by a colleague to Mrs. Hawkins, “You are definitely a great teacher.  I have loved the new learning strategies you have been using to engage students and the parent outreach!”  Mrs. Hawkins held a Parent Math Session in March to help the parents understand the material better so they would feel better equipped to help their children at home. 

From an early age, Mrs. Hawkins wanted to be a teacher.  She says, “Education is very important to me."  Classroom management expert Rick Morris said that kids need four things: freedom, choice, safety, and fun.  "I try to do my best to keep learning fun, to keep students engaged and motivated, to do their possible job, and feel good about themselves.  I have heard over the years, from students that never liked math before, that math has now become their favorite subject.  It's a spectacular moment when a student realizes his or her full potential."

Outside interests include Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts, and fishing. However, her attention lately focuses on building an Autism support group, STAR (starsofemporia.weebly.com), which she started three years ago in Emporia, VA.
