We are very lucky to have Mrs. Hogenbirk join our school and classroom. Mrs. Hogenbirk will teach 8T all day on Fridays as I am out of the classroom as "lead teacher." Kaitlin is coming from Wiarton where she was teaching Grade 7/8. I am very confident having Kaitlin in our the classroom. I know that she shares many of the same philosophies as I do so students will feel consistency on Fridays when she is in the room. Not only is Kaitlin an amazing teacher, she brings with her a variety of experiential learning opportunities that 8T will get to experience.
Mrs. Hogenbirk has spent 1 day with 8T, and I believe that almost all students mentioned to me at least once that the class likes her more than they like me! Which, I did predict would happen.
