Caroline Hatton reads to students in Long Beach.

“Ms. Hatton has a gift, not only for words and science, but for speaking and listening to children on a personal, one-on-one basis. Caroline truly cares about kids and they sense it. That kind of genuine relationship, as you know, causes children to dig deeper and try harder. From her commitment to children, to getting her own words “just right,” to her punctuality and thoughtfulness, she is THE REAL DEAL.”
