Mrs. Hogberg's Web Page

PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR INFORMATION ON DISTANCE LEARNING.


Hello! My name is Stacey Hogberg. This is my tenth year teaching of English; however, this is my 7th year at Kingsland. Also, I am the National Honor Society adviser.

A little bit about me: I grew up on a dairy farm near Elkader, Iowa, where I gained a strong work ethic by baling small-square bales of hay and feeding calves and cows. I attended Central College in Pella, Iowa, (Go Dutch!) where I received a bachelor of arts degree in English in 2010. I taught two years in Iowa before becoming a part-time teacher at Chatfield. In 2013, I became a full-time teacher at Kingsland. 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 5) and Levi (age 3). 


DISTANCE LEARNING INFORMATION

 

Assignment Communication

  • Assignments for the week will be posted on Google Classroom each Monday. Assignment upload links for the week will be on Google Classroom as well. Pay attention to assignment deadlines each week. Usually, there are two deadlines per week. If a student needs more time, the work will not be counted late if the work is completed by Sunday, 11:59 PM. 

Classroom Materials

  • Classroom materials should be found under the specific unit post on Google Classroom. You should have a paper copy of most books needed. 

  • If a packet was sent home (non-CIS classes), I have posted an electronic copy of the packet under the specific unit post on Google Classroom incase you forgot/lost the packet. 

Assignments to turn in/upload

  • Assignments will be uploaded on Google Classroom via submission links

  • Make sure you submit the correct document to the correct link. Read the title of the upload link before submitting.

  • Pay attention to assignment deadlines each week. Usually, there are two deadlines per week.

  • For classes with packets that were sent home: You will be taking pictures of your written packet work and uploading them via the link on Google Classroom (when noted to do so on the weekly plans). If you don't have a phone, you can type the answers on a Google Document and submit them to Google Classroom. 

Assessments 

  • Most assessments will be in written format where you have to respond to questions in writing via Google Forms or a paper format. These will be noted on the weekly plans with directions.

  • Note: Written assessments will be checked for plagiarism and originality. If found to copy another student’s work, you will receive a zero on the assessment.


 

How to communicate with me

 
  • Email:hogberg.stacey@kingsland2137.org

  • Remind.com--directions for sign-up are on Google Classroom. This is basically like texting me through the educational app.

  • Google Voice Phone Number: (507) 867-8483

  • Note: I will try to respond in a timely manner to questions. The school policy states 24-hours to get back to students. I’ll respond quicker through remind.com and Google Voice.

Students without Internet

 
  • If you responded to the survey/email stating you don’t have the internet, there will be a box inside the high-school office. You can look for your name to get materials each Friday for the following week. Once you are done with the previous week’s assignments, you drop them off in the same box bu the following Monday. There will be a document sent home with the district policy on this. Please read that document when you receive it.

*Email is my preferred method of communication

Class Updates/Lesson Plans
I post the lesson plans for the week by Sunday night. You can see them via Google Classroom. Email me if you would like an invite to access Google Classroom. You will receive an email update every week;however, ask your child to view the whole page because you don't have access to the specific Google Classroom page itself. 

Google Classroom
I use Google Classroom for having students access materials and participating in discussions and handing in projects. This is the main webpage that students will use in my classroom and where lessson plans can be found.

Remind.com
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.
