Ms. Kaitlyn Hesseltine

Welcome to our Pre-K family! My name is Kaitlyn Hesseltine and I am so excited to be your child's ECSE teacher this year! I will work alongside Ms.Lopez and Mrs. Rinner in a fully-inclusive co-teach classroom environment servicing children of all ability levels ages 3-5 years old. This year I also serve as the Pre-K team leader. 

This will be my 3rd year as an ECSE teacher and my first year with Northeast ISD. Previously, I taught ECSE/PK in Boerne ISD where I served as both a teaching assistant and a teacher. 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!), 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. 

I encourage my families to join SeeSaw for the latest news and updates on our classroom. This will be our main form of communication during the school year. 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!
