Mrs. Mary Kathryn Waldrop

I am from Arkansas.  I got married and moved to Charlotte County in 1991.  I have two sons, a daughter-in-law and a yellow lab.  I began teaching in 1991 at Sallie Jones Elementary School.  I have taught Kindergarten, first grade, second grade and third grade.  I have been a classroom teacher and an academic coach, curriculum specialist and LEAD teacher.  

My favorite quote is by one of my favorite characters, Horton:

"A person's a person, no matter how small."  Dr. Seuss

My goal and my mission each day is to instill a love of learning in children so that they will become lifelong learners by making them feel safe, loved, successful, heard and important.
