Mrs. Susan Hatfield
Hi! My name is Susan Hatfield, and I LOVE teaching Kindergarten at Cartersville Primary School!! I graduated from the University of Georgia in 1987. Upon graduating, I took my first teaching job as a First Grade teacher at Emerson Elementary School. In 1988, I married my husband, Hoyt. We will celebrate our 30th year of marriage this year. I taught at Emerson for three years at which time my husband and I decided to begin our family. I stayed home for fourteen years devoted to raising our children who are now all grown and independent! Harrison is a recent college graduate working and living in Cartersville. Our middle son, Holden, works on a horse ranch in Montana. Our daughter, Claire, is a Junior at Georgia Southern University. They fill our lives with much love and joy! During my time at home, I received my Masters of Education degree in Curriculum and Design. This is my seventeenth year in the classroom. I adore this age and LOVE having the opportunity to be a child's first experience with school and learning!! My goal is to instill in each child that enters my room a love for learning, reading, inquiring and growing.
When I'm not preparing for and teaching my students, I enjoy gardening, yoga, reading, entertaining and spending time with my family and friends. :)
