National Teaching Award Nominee
The Potomac School, Washington, DC
Student Nomination Story
Mrs. Hoogstra always supported me and believed in me. She made me love going to school every day. In other grades, I would sometimes dread school and math. Now, I have a whole different perspective. I love going to school to learn and say hi to Mrs. Hoogstra in the halls. She always made time for me, and I felt like I could tell her anything. I will always be grateful toward Mrs. Hoogstra because she made my life a lot more enjoyable (since I am at school 5 days a week) and she taught me very well.
