posted Sep 9, 2016, 7:36 AM by School Publications

         Alert! There is a new arrival at Brownstown Community Schools. Mrs. Kayla Hingson is the new preschool teacher this year and hopefully for many more to come. She attended Lake Land College where she graduated with an Associate’s in Elementary Education also she attended Eastern Illinois University where she received  her Bachelor’s in Early Childhood Education. She is currently attending Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville where she is enrolled in the courses of Early Childhood Special Education.

Mrs. Hingson was born and raised in Effingham, Illinois and still resides there.  She has always loved school, learning, and the teachers she had growing up. As a student, she always respected her teachers and seeing them teach made her passion for school and  education stronger.  Mrs. Hingson loves spending her “work” days with all the children. The students come in and are always eager to learn.  She enjoys seeing her little learners come in everyday and see what they have learned and what they already know. For her there is great satisfaction in watching her students grow, mentally and physically, throughout the school year.

Mrs. Hingson was a substitute teacher in local school districts for three years and a Brownstown preschool classroom aide for four years. This job has been her life goal and she took this specific job because Brownstown is a great community. She said there are so many  great teachers to work with at Brownstown Elementary School and looks forward to a wonderful year.

The passion she has for teaching is amazing. Hopefully she can influence the students so they can enjoy learning as much as she does.  Her love for learning is contagious and she is a excellent  teacher to be selected to teach the little ones this year.  To all the students, teachers, and staff of the Brownstown Community, let’s give a warm welcome to  Kayla Hingson this year so she may receive the full Brownstown experience.
