Mrs. Samantha Hatton
Hi! My name is Mrs.Hatton, and I am so excited to be a part of the Walsh Elementary Fourth Grade team this year! More importantly, I am THRILLED to be your teacher!! I will be teaching Science and Social Studies to all of Walsh's fourth grade. It’s going to be a fun year full of lots of learning and new adventures, and I can’t wait to see what the year has in store for us! I’m excited to get to know all about you, but first I’m going to tell you a few things about me!
I grew up in Fort Worth, Texas, and after high school I attended Texas Christian University… GO Frogs! I received my bachelor’s degree in Psychology from TCU and decided I wanted to continue my education. Then I moved to Chicago, Illinois where I went to the Erikson Institute and got my Masters in Child Development.
I taught Pre-K for three years in Chicago, and after moving back to Texas I taught in Sanger for three years. Next I taught kindergarten and fourth grade in Burleson for five years. Our family has moved here to the Aledo area and I am so excited to be working in Aledo ISD and to be a part of Walsh’s Fourth Grade team. This will be my thirteenth year teaching, and I can’t wait for our journey to begin together!
I am married to a wonderful man named James, and we have a preschooler named Izzy. I am a huge TCU football fan, and can't wait to root for the Bearcats as well! I love spending time with my family, riding my bike, reading a good book, and just enjoying life.
A few of my favorite things:
- Kendra Scott
- Harry Potter
- Uncle Julio's and Mexican cuisine
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have. I feel communication is very important! My conference time is 8:00-8:50 am.
