My name is Rachel Hawkins. I am 22 years old and have lived in Paducah my whole life. I graduated from Christian Fellowship School in 2012 and began my college career at Murray State University. This past May, I graduated from MSU with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education. I worship at Friendship Baptist Church with my family, actively serving in the music and children’s ministries there. I enjoy singing, cooking, and learning about other cultures (especially German). I have wanted to be a teacher for as long as I can remember. Positively impacting the lives of children is my main goal as an educator. I am beyond blessed to be able to teach students to be confident not only academically, but spiritually. My hope and prayer as a Kindergarten teacher is to instill in children a love for learning and a heart for Christ. I look forward to being a part of the CCA family!
