Hello, Hawthorne families! I am Laurel Kress, one of your 4th grade teachers. Fourth grade is an amazing year! This will be my first year at Hawthorne, but my 8th year of teaching. I taught at Jeannette Rankin Elementary for two years and in Great Falls for five years before that. I have three degrees from MSU Bozeman: B.S. in Agricultural Education Relations, B.S. in Elementary Education K-8, and a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction.
When I’m not teaching, I enjoy being outside hiking with my dogs or hunting in the fall.
Please contact me with any questions or if you would like to join us in the classroom!
