Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Mrs. Hooghiem’s 2nd Grade Class!
Welcome to your child's second grade year at King Elementary! My name is Anna Hooghiem and I am so glad to have your child in my class. This is my second year teaching second grade here at King Elementary. I am originally from the great (and freezing) state of North Dakota. I moved to Colorado Springs with my Canadian husband after we got married last summer. In my free time, I enjoy watching movies, crocheting, and spending time with friends and family. My favorite things include children’s books, hot tamales, and anything colorful! I believe that children learn best in a positive, safe learning environment. I strive to create a classroom where students feel safe, welcome, and cared for. It is my goal to hold students to high expectations in both their behavior and work, and always encourage them to do and be their very best. This year I will be using ClassDojo and a behavior chart to help encourage positive behavior and to help guide each student to make good choices about his/her behavior. Your child will bring home their Minion Binder with their homework each night. They will have nightly math homework, weekly spelling words, and should read at least 20 minutes a night. Reading homework or unfinished classwork may be sent home as needed. This school year will be busy and productive, filled with fun and exciting learning activities, social events and much more. Throughout the school year, please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you have about your child or other school issues! The links below can be used to access ClassDojo and email me, as well provide access to student resources that can be used at home. I’m looking forward to a great year!
