Ms. Kaitlyn Hesseltine
Welcome to our Pre-K family! My name is Kaitlyn Hesseltine and I am so excited to be your child's Pre-K teacher this year! I will work alongside Mrs. Broussard and you all to create a strong foundation for your child's future success. This year I also serve as the Pre-K team leader.
This will be my 5th year in the classroom and my 2nd year with Northeast ISD and Larkspur. All of my experience is centered around Pre-K education and includes Early Childhood Special Education and English as a Second Language. I was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas and moved to Boerne in 2008. I graduated from Champion High School in 2011, then from UTSA in 2017.
Outside of school I enjoy crocheting (my favorite hobby!), riding my bicycle in support of a cure for Multiple Sclerosis, playing video games, and working on puzzles as well as spending time with my four ferrets (Puppet, Tunafish, Willow, and Squeasel) and two horses (Buddy and Nola). In the summer I enjoy spending time at the beach.
ClassDojo is our main form of communication--please join for the latest news and updates on our classroom. Parent conferences are held by request and may be held virtually or in person. You may also email or call at any time--I will respond within 24 hours.
I look forward to working with you and your child this year!
