Teaching and Related Service

Mrs. Hooker’s classroom teaching history covers over 20 years in elementary schools. She spent the last three years as a team leader assisting with transitions (to middle schools). About 10 years were invested on curriculum committees to research and acquire the best materials for learners.

Research and Creative Activity

After a career of following around a military husband, Mrs. Hooker decided to conduct a study that compared military students to civilian students. The major components considered were academic, social, and behavioral effects on both groups.

Personal Sketch

Mrs. Hooker is an avid learner and reads almost anything. Most of her time is spent with her family and church activities.
