BRANDY HYATT
SPECIAL EDUCATION TEACHER
SULLIVAN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

About Mrs. Hyatt:

Brandy Hyatt earned a bachelor’s degree in education, specializing in Preschool-Grade 3, Mild Intervention from Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College in 2010. After becoming a mother, she decided to pursue her “life-long dream of becoming a teacher.” Throughout the past nine years as a teacher, Mrs. Hyatt has taught Pre-K, Kindergarten and 2nd grade. She currently teaches Special Education for Kindergarten through 3rd grade. 

Why she enjoys teaching:

“Being a teacher is an everyday blessing, for many reasons,” explained Mrs. Hyatt.  “When I am teaching, I am allowed to be creative. I create learning environments, engaging lessons, and activities that promote discovery.” 

She continued,Teaching also provides me with an opportunity to be the ultimate problem solver. As the special education teacher, I get to work with all the teachers in grades K-3 and learn from them as we work together to provide our best teaching to the students at SES.”

“Most importantly, the reason I LOVE teaching is that I am able to connect with the KIDS!” said Mrs. Hyatt. “They are the most interesting, humorous, kind, and smart little people on the planet!”   

Favorite teaching moments:

“It's all about connection,” said Mrs. Hyatt. “My favorite memories include students who have made connections academically and experience learning success.  When I get to help direct and witness the progress, it's incredible.” 

She added, “My other favorite teaching moments include all the students who have made a personal connection with me and thrive on a daily hello, high-five, or hug for encouragement.” 

How Mrs. Hyatt spends her free time:

“Outside of school, I spend most of my time with my husband and three children.  Whenever I can find (or make) time,  I love seeing live music, taking road trips, discovering local restaurants with charm, and shopping for unique vintage finds at antique stores.”
