About Mr. Hatch
I'm proud to say this is my 14th year as a teacher and the second year teaching third grade.  Third grade is a great grade to teach.  

My bachelor's degree in Elementary Education was earned from Monmouth College.  More recently, I earned a master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Concordia University.  

During my free time, I like to spend time with my family.  We often bike or go on short jogs. I also love to build and create things.  I grow herbs and vegetables in my garden at home and cook, frequently without using a recipe.  Additionally, I read stories with my children and play games like Mario Kart and Minecraft with them.
