Meet the Teacher

Hi! I am Mrs. Watkins, and I am thrilled to be your child's teacher this year! This is my second year teaching at Yealey, and I absolutely love everything about it! I love watching childrens' minds shape and mold into wonderful readers, writers, mathematicians, historians, and scientists! My absolute favorite thing in the whole world is seeing the light bulb go off when a student gets it, and they realize their potential! That same potential I have seen all along! 

I was born and raised in Northern Kentucky and love everything about it! I live in Florence with my husband, our three children, two dogs, and cat. My son Jason and daughter Samantha both attend Yealey, and my youngest daughter Madelyn, will be here next year! 

In a nutshell, I have always loved children, and teaching has been my dream since I was a child. I love sports, crafts, music, and being outside. My goal is to ALWAYS create a fun and safe learning environment for your child, and get them ready for fifth grade! Thank you in advance for making this a great year!
