    RH Robin Hall  

    My name is Robin Hall and I am excited for my 9th year at CMES! I have a B.S. in Elementary Education and a M.S. Ed. with a focus on Elementary Reading and Literacy. This is my 18th year of teaching and my 7th year in first grade. I love helping children learn how to think deeply, become amazing problem-solvers, and achieve things they didn’t think possible. My husband and I have 4 kids and 1 dog. We love to spend time together, hang out with friends, and go for hikes. I am looking forward to another great year.
