Ms. Hooper

Greetings from Knik!

     I am a mother of six children, most of whom are grown and have started families of their own.  I love to read, hike and spend company with my dog, my friends and my family.  Sometimes I knit, but only on limited occasions.  

     I have a Master's degree in special education, with an emphasis in behavior as well as autism, and children who live loud are my passion.  I believe that all children want to be a success both socially as well as academically, and I know that with support, each student can achieve that dream.  There are no "bad" kids or "bad" behavior, and all children deserve to feel worthy and appreciated for their own uniqueness.  My room strives to be a welcoming place that embraces a growth mindset.  In so doing, I honor growth, not perfection. 

     The best method of communication between me and home during the day is email:  kathleen.hooper@matsuk12.us

     The direct phone number for my room is 352-0351.  I try to answer it whenever possible.
