Welcome to the Kindergarten 2020-2021 School Year! I am Mrs. R. Sutton and I am excited to begin my 8th year teaching kindergarten at Rose Hill - Magnolia Elementary. This school year may look a little different. However, my goal is to make it one of the best years yet! I am a Duplin county native. I attended and received my Bachelor's of Science Degree from the University of Mount Olive in Early Childhood Education. Kindergarten has a special place in my heart. Kindergarten is a year filled with wonder, excitement, and curiosity. Each year I am amazed at the transformation kindergarteners make from learning letters to being READERS by the end of the year. My goal is to create a love of learning in your child this year.
I do love teaching! However, my family is my everything. I have a wonderful husband, a 5 year old son, and a little girl due in September. I enjoy spending time outside, planting flowers, and going to the beach. I cannot wait to meet your child and get to know more about him or her. During my maternity leave, Mrs. Houston will substitute in my place. She is a retired kindergarten teacher with more than 20 years of experience. She is amazing! We also have the help of Ms. Brinson who will be our assistant teacher this year. Together, we will make this a wonderful year for your kindegartner.
