My passions are education and impacting the minds of tomorrow. My name is Scarlett Hudgins and I am the teacher for the 3’s and 4’s classroom here at 1st Step Learning Academy. As a graduate of Point University, I am able to provide your children with a nurturing and educational day. While attending college I majored in Human relations with an emphasis on family and child development, graduating with my bachelor's degree. In addition to my education, I have eight years of teaching experience in private/homeschools with a specialization in pre-school learning. Through my knowledge gained from college and previous teaching experiences, I have learned the importance of engaging students by utilizing all learning styles. I believe children need customized education, molding the lesson plans to accommodate their learning styles and personalities. Therefore, in our class we will play, dance, sing, write, create, build, and explore their interests every day. My desire is for students in our classroom to not only develop a love for school but a never-ending passion and insatiable hunger to learn forever.
