Mrs. Jennifer Hawkins

Jennifer Hawkins is excited to be returning to the Turner Creek community this year! Mrs. Hawkins is a graduate of the University of South Carolina, where she studied Elementary Education and earned her master's in Educational Leadership and Administration. She is a huge Gamecock fan! She is a believer that learning can be both fun and challenging, and she loves working with teachers to find ways to bring that into their classrooms. Building relationships with students is essential to them feeling comfortable to take academic risks and grow as scholars, and she will work tirelessly until all students feel a sense of belonging at school. In 2019, Ms. Hawkins was named as an ASCD Emerging Leader, a group of top educational leaders in the world. She also has created and hosted the Beginning Teacher Wednesdays podcast. 

In her spare time you can catch her updating her fantasy football team, traveling with her husband, playing disc golf, watching Gamecock Women's Basketball, reading, or chasing their dogs Otis and Sully. She is so excited to learn and grow with everyone at Turner Creek this year, and is excited to see all that they can learn and accomplish together!
