|Welcome to Mrs. Hooper's 3rd Grade|
My name is Edith (Edie) Hooper. I will be your child's 3rd Grade Teacher for the 2016-2017 school year. It is my pleasure to assist you and your child's learning this year!
I will share just a few things about myself. I grew up in Spearfish, SD. In 1983, I obtained my BS in Elementary Ed./Vocal Music. After that, I taught 4th Grade in Murdo, SD for 23 years. It was there that I married Wayne, and we share one beautiful son, his name is Nick. In 2005, we moved to Hot Springs and I accepted a 7th Grade English position for two years. Two years later, I found myself back in the elementary realm teaching 4th grade for two years. After losing our home to the Alabaugh fire in 2007, we moved to Casper, WY where I taught in a 6th grade self-contained classroom. During that time my husband was diagnosed with cancer. We made a decision to move back to the Black Hills. For the next four years I was the cataloger at the Hot Springs Public Library. I once again decided I needed to be back in the classroom and was offered a third grade position which is where I currently am part of a team! Rebecca and Diane welcomed me with open arms. I am back in the saddle again!
