Mrs. Kristen Hooker

Dear New Student and family,

Welcome!  My name is Kristen Hooker!  I am teaching Math 7 and Advanced Math 7 this year at Northwoods Park Middle School!  I am a military spouse originally from West Virginia.  I earned my Bachelors of Science in Mathematics Education at West Liberty University and my Masters of Arts in Instruction Design and Technology through West Virginia University.  This year is my tenth year teaching.  I have taught just about everything from seventh grade math to Algebra 2 and Pre-Calculus in four states, and Japan.  Algebra is my favorite though! I like how there rules you can follow that work every time! 

 

My husband is a Marine and our boys are seven and five.  They will both be in public school this year.  The kindergartener is especially excited!  My husband's career has taken our family from WV to Virginia twice, Iwakuni, Japan and back here to NC for a second stay.  We love Japan the most of all the places we have visited and lived because of the great people and the cheap travel!  Some of my favorite adventures in Japan are from the local park displayed in my classroom, climbing Mt. Fuji, walking in the bamboo forests and our travels out of Japan!   

 

When I am not working hard for you, I enjoy golfing, relaxing on the beach, reading and selling books, playing outside with my kids and dogs, baking and hiking.  

 After the last two years, I can't wait to meet you all!  I believe every student has the capability to do math! I promise that by the end of the year you will enjoy, if not LOVE, math!  The only way to learn is to try and make mistakes.  Get ready to make lots of mistakes and learn a whole lot!  We are going to have a great time!

You can see the extra bio I created (but couldn't figure out how to attach for you to automatically see) here.

If you ever have any questions, please feel free to reach out!  I am here to help you be successful this year.  We are going to have a fantastic year! 

 

Sincerely,

Mrs. Hooker
