My name is Brittany Hutto, and I live here in Tallahassee with my husband and four-year-old daughter, Emma. I am very excited to have you as part of my language arts and social studies class. This is my tenth year teaching 5th grade at Hawks Rise Elementary. I graduated from Florida State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. Go Noles!!! I also hold endorsements in the areas of Gifted, Reading, and ESOL. I've had the honor of being recognized by the Florida Department of Education as a High Impact Teacher. Reading and Social Studies were my favorite subjects when I was in school, and I am very passionate about teaching them. I hold high expectations for my students both academically and behaviorally. Last year, my students were very successful, and I can't wait to see what this new group will accomplish. Prepare to be challenged in your ways of thinking and to take control of your learning!
