    Mrs. Hutson Kim Hutson Second Grade
    I received a Bachelor of Arts in Early Childhood Education from Lindenwood University in St. Charles, Mo. I hold a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Teaching Through the Arts from Lesley University, as well as a Gifted In-Field Endorsement. I have been a member of the Settles Bridge community from almost the beginning, joining in 2000! It has been a honor to begin, and continue my teaching career at such an amazing school! Over twenty years has gone by in a flash and it has been a joy to be a part of so many children’s lives! I am looking forward to another wonderful year at Settles Bridge!

     Ms. Kuriger Pat Kuriger Second Grade
    I have been teaching for 35 years. 17 years in NY and 18 in GA. I have also received "Teacher of the Year" in both states. I earned a Master's Degree from Plattsburgh State in upstate NY. I am here to encourage the love of learning; the growth of a child's self-esteem through their individual identities, strengths, and interests. Focus will be on the "whole" child, physically, emotionally, and intellectually. I am very excited for this upcoming school year and can't wait to meet my new students!

    Ms. Smith    Caroline Smith Second Grade

    I am so excited to be a part of the Settles Bridge family and 2nd Grade team! I graduated from Georgia Southern University with a degree in Early Childhood Education.  I grew up in sunny Savannah, Georgia. I have lived in the Atlanta area for about four years. I enjoy exploring the city, spending time with family and friends, and going to the beach! I aim to instill a love of learning in each child by providing engaging, hands-on learning experiences that allow students to feel confident while also meeting each child exactly where they are. I am looking forward to a wonderful year in Second Grade!
