My name is Laurie Hogan. I am a graduate of Xavier University, in Cincinnati, OH...class of 1986. I have been teaching for 30 years, 28 of which have been at Connell! Throughout my career I have taught grades 1,3,4,5 and 6. I have taught Learning Support, Regular and Honors classes in those 28 years. Currently I teach grade 5 Science and Social Studies for all three classes.I am the mother of twin boys, who also attend, and have attended, Connell. I played soccer throughout grade school, high school and college as a sweeper and defender. I am a cat lover, and own two furry friends named Rascal and Louie. When I am not busy with school work, I enjoy gardening, running, reading and camping with my family. I also enjoy traveling. My family and I love the beach...ocean or lake...and playing outside doing just about anything. :)Connell is my "second home" and I hope to retire from here when the time comes. I have many items on my "bucket list" for that remaining teaching time I have. Stay tuned for things to come.
