"For me, baseball is the most nourishing game outside of literature. They both are re-tellings of human experience."

Hello! My name is Stacey Hogberg. This is my eighth year teaching English; however, this is my fifth year at Kingsland. Also, I am advising National Honor Society.
A little bit about me: I grew up on a dairy farm near Elkader, Iowa, and I attended Central College in Pella, Iowa, (Go Dutch!) where I received a bachelor of arts degree in English in 2010. I graduated from Southern New Hampshire University in August of 2014 with a MA in English. I enjoy spending time with my family and watching many sporting events. My favorite teams include the Minnesota Vikings, Chicago Cubs, Minnesota Twins, and the Kingsland Knights. I love spending time with my family--especially my husband (Mr. Hogberg), and my two sons, Ezra (age 3) and Levi (17 months).

Class Updates/Lesson Plans
I post the lesson plans for the week by Sunday night. You can see them under the tab "Weekly Plans"--Note: They are subject to change due to weather delays, field trips, testing, etc.
I use Google Classroom for having students access materials and participating in discussions and handing in projects. If you would like access to the code to look at these materials, please email me.
I am using remind.com this year. Students and parents can get a text with reminders on major assignments and homework. By the way, I will not have access to students' phone numbers. Students text a code to the remind.com's class name and I send out a mass text through the system. Email me if you would like to receive texts about assignments and homework.
