Hali Hutchens

Greetings, my fellow learners! Let me introduce myself. I am Ms. Hali Hutchens, 3rd grade teacher at Southwest Elementary. I recently graduated from Western Governors University with an undergraduate degree in Elementary Education, but I also have my certification to teach English as a foreign language. In fact, I taught English online to students in China for two years while I attended college. I grew up as a military brat so I am completely familiar with the ever-changing fluency that comes with a military town and actually prefer it! In my spare time, I can be found reading endlessly, watcing old movies, or learning something new. As my loving husband can tell you, I am an introvert in my extra-curricular activities. Overall, my absolute favorite thing is learning and helping others learn. I look forward to working with all of my young learners.
