Welcome to Mrs. Hawthorne’s first grade class! I am looking forward to a great school year!


I graduated from Texas A&M in 2003 with a bachelor’s degree in education.  



I am beginning my thirteenth year in Alvarado.  I joined the Indians in 2006. I started out teaching 6th grade for 2 years. In 2008, I became a part of the South team and taught second grade for 6 years.  This will be my 4th year teaching first grade.

I am married and have 2 precious children. My daughter is getting ready to start kindergarten and my son is 3 years old. In my spare time I enjoy reading, crafting, and hanging out with my family and friends.
