Mrs. Carolyn Hunt
I am so excited to be teaching first grade this year at McBride Elementary. This is my first year at McBride and in Oregon but my 17th year teaching. I graduated from Washington State University and then started teaching at Panther Lake Elementary School in Kent, Washington as a AM/PM Kindergarten teacher. I had an opportunity to get a job at Martin Sortun Elementary in Kent and work along side my Mother and so I moved to a new school in 2006. There I worked on getting my Master's in Literacy which I got also in 2006 (a month before my daughter was born.) From there I went on to teach Kindergarten Academice Intervention (the students who struggled the most) until we were given the chance to go full day and I then taught for many years as Kindergarten teacher. I had the opportunity to try out first grade in 2017 and I loved it.
My family has been in St Helens area for generations, so we decided to move here where family is and where I called my second home. I am loving living in the area and so do my kids and husband. I have three children a 12 year old girl, a 9 year old boy, and a 4 year old girl. They keep me busy at home.
I am pretty busy in the classroom and find very few times for me to sit down and check my emails or phone during the workday, so if you have an emergency, please leave a message at the office for me.
The best way to contact me is through email where I can also access at home if the day has been full of meetings and I didn't get a chance to check it before I had to get my kids from daycare. I am glad to answer even the smallest answer to address the smallest concern. Never feel like you are bothering me, I am happy to help with anything.
