     Now Welcoming 2022-23 Lil Hawks to Our Kindergarten Crew !!!

      I'm Mrs. Deason, and I am extremely excited and honored to be your child's kindergarten inclusion teacher this school year!  I wanted to extend a warm and friendly welcome to our newest kindergarten families!!  We are going to have an AWESOME year together!  I can't wait to get to know all of you and your lil hawks!!  

    A Little About Me: I was born and raised right here in our beautiful city of Tallahassee! I consider myself very blessed to be a product of our local schools as a Trailblazer(3rd-5th), Buck and Timberwolf. I have many wonderful long lasting experiences and connections to these amazing schools.  In December of 2006, I graduated from Flagler College(TCC campus) with a dual degree in both Elementary and Exceptional Education. During college I was lucky enough to get a well rounded education that allowed me to also become certified in ESOL & become Reading Endorsed. I completed my college education with an outstanding internship at Ft. Braden under the late and great Jimbo Jackson. While at the Fort, I was privileged with opportunities in both the Kindergarten & ESE resource settings. After my college graduation, I took some varied substitute jobs at Kate Sullivan & Springwood before being a full time Pioneer at the Fort as an assistant reading coach. After the birth of my boy, I concluded it was time to stay home with my newborn son while he was young.

    I taught varying exceptionalities(self-contained) when coming to Hawks Rise for the first 5 years and then I co-taught 4th grade math and 3rd-5th science/social studies for a year and now Kindergarten (for 3 years).  I also taught resource classes in reading and math in 1st grade one year!  I love it here for the almost 10 years I've been at Hawks Rise! It has been such a joy to teach here among some of the most legendary faculty members and be a part of an amazing school family!!

    I absolutely love teaching Kindergarten... it has my heart!!

    My Family:  I have been married to my wonderful husband, Jared, for 16 years and we have a terrific son!  My boy, Nolan, is attending Montford Middle School as a 7th grader this school year.  I have a few other four-legged "family" members:  the Deason's love our CRAZY dachshund dogs and a farm full of deer along with a catfish pond.  

    A Few of My Favorite Things:  My family life keeps me pretty busy, but I also love reading about places to travel, experimenting with cooking, walking through nature on a cool fall day or early in the morning, nibbling on sweet & salty snacks, and the time we spend on the water kayaking!!  

      So buckle in for the kindergarten adventure! It is SUCH an amazing year but, be sure your lil hawks will grow so fast!  We are going to have so much fun learning through many story-telling times and an occasional messy hands-on activity or two.  Together every day, side by side, we will learn so much!  I can't wait to get started :)
