Welcome To Third Grade!
My name is Mrs. Hulst and I will be your child's third grade teacher. This is my 4th year at RHM but I have been in teaching since 2001. I taught Pre-K for over 8 years and was the Director of a Child Development Center. In addition to 3rd grade, I have also taught kindergarten and first grade, along with two sixth grade short-term positions. Aside from teaching, I was a Behavior Specialist and Mobile Therapist for 2 years. As a Behavior Specialist and Mobile Therapist, I developed treatment plans and worked with adolescents and families to provide therapy and interventions to children with Autism and/or other behavioral/mental health concerns. In addition, I was a Third Grade Religious Education Teacher for almost 10 years. I also have over 15 years of volunteer experience.
My education includes an undergraduate degree in Psychology from California University of Pennsylvania and a Masters Degree in Elementary Education from Carlow University. I also have 21 graduate level credits in Professional Counseling.
My family and I moved to NC from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in June 2015. I currently reside in Hampstead with my husband Ken and our two daughters. My daughter Kaitlyn is 18 and will be attending UNCW in the fall and my youngest Kyra is 14 and is in 9th grade. We also have a cat named Patches and a turtle named Franklin.
Aside from teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family. I enjoy reading, walking, and traveling. Go Steelers!!!!
