Welcome to a new and exciting year in Kindergarten at Bridge Point Elementary!
Many things will be new to your kindergartner and perhaps you as parents. Not to worry…we all learn new things each day, and isn’t that what makes life interesting.
I’d like to share a little about myself with you. My name is Joan Hester and I am beginning my 34th year of teaching, with all of my experience in kindergarten. I have a Bachelor’s Degree from Texas Lutheran University and a Master’s Degree from The University of Texas at Austin. I taught in San Antonio for 19 years and this is my 15th year at Bridge Point. I grew up in Round Rock and moved back to the Austin area to be near my family. My parents, my two brothers and their families all live here, as does my extended family. I love to travel, go to live music performances, read and spend time with family and friends.
In my opinion, kindergartners are at the most fun age! They are wonderful children, full of life, curiosity and spunk! I can’t think of anything I would rather do than spend my days helping these youngsters reach their maximum potential.
I look forward to a fun and successful year !
