Mrs. Wendy Dalton
Welcome to Kindergarten! Your energetic teacher is Wendy Dalton and she has worked in the education field since 2002. With over 18 years of teaching experience, she has taught grades K-3 and the following specialized classes: Severely Developmentally Delayed Kindergarten and Second Grade Success Classes. Her family relocated from Texas five years ago due to her husband's job relocation. During the summer she recently relocated to Lovettsville. Mrs. Dalton has two daughters - one that just relocated to Germany this month to start working as a professional dancer and the other is a spunky six year old who will be in First Grade at HCA. HCA has allowed her the opportunity to use her vast experience in 21st century skills, Inquiry Lessons, PBL, STEM and STEAM to collaborate within a charter school framework while creating authentic learning experiences. She has worked as a Kindergarten teacher for eleven years of her career and she has a reputation of being a highly effective literacy coach. Mrs. Dalton has worked with the State of Florida DOE to review curriculum as part of a research team and she previously assisted in writing curriculum/lessons for two previous school districts in both Georgia and Florida. She was awarded Teacher of the Year while teaching a K/1 looping class in Florida and then as a 2nd grade teacher in Texas. One of her favorite quotes is "The greatest gifts you can give children are the roots of responsbility and the wings of independence." Mrs. Dalton wants her Kindergarten students to live the mantra that "little people can do big things!" Mrs. Dalton also is the HCA Running Team Coach and Organizer. Last year she took a group of K-2 elementary scholars to compete in the Odyssey of the Mind as one of their coaches!
