Mrs. Kathryn Hudson
Hi! My name is Kathryn Hudson and I am a kindergarten teacher at Meadow. I have been a teacher for 10 years. I have taught third grade for 3 years, fourth grade for 2 years, and kindergarten for 5 years. I graduated from Campbell University with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education, and I received my Master's Degree from Nova Southeastern University in Brain-Based Teaching and Learning with a concentration in reading and literacy. I am from Benson and have lived in the area my entire life. I am happily married to a Meadow alumni and we have 2 wonderful boys and 1 sweet girl! I love our special school, and I cherish the opportunity to teach kindergarteners in their first official year as a Meadow Indian! Kindergarten is a fun grade, and it is truly amazing to see how much students learn and grow from the beginning of school to the end of the year.
