Mrs. Hawkins Receives Excellence in Teaching Award

September 25

Please join us in congratulating Mrs. Chrystal Hawkins, who was named as the recipient of the Excellence in Teaching Award. Chrystal has served Charleston Day families by teaching music and inspiring students for the last 25 years.

“Chrystal motivates all students to stretch their abilities and to produce at a level that surprises the students themselves, their parents, and the school community,” wrote one of her peers who nominated her.

The Fund was established in 2016 by a Charleston Day School alumni family who wanted to recognize and show appreciation for faculty members.

In addition to teaching music and leading productions — both grade level and school-wide, Chrystal sponsors the middle school drama elective class, which holds several performances a year. Students and faculty members alike treasure Chrystal’s friendly smile, positive attitude and affirming words.
