Welcome to platform 9 ¾. My name is Ms. Albarez. I look forward to teaching your 4th grade wizards. My class room theme is Harry Potter, I use that to help encourage your children to love learning. This is my second year teaching at Hawthorn Academy. My favorite thing is when a student gets that light bulb look when they figure out how something works. I received my Bachelor's degree in Communication through BYU-Idaho. When not teaching I love spending my free time cooking, spending time with my dog Carlisle, reading a good book, or seeing the latest movie.
