Mrs. Sherrie Hohimer

Welcome to 2nd grade!!!  I have been an educator for over 16 years.  I graduated from Northern Illinois University in 2000.  I received a Master's in Reading and a Reading Specialist Degree from St. Francis University in 2008.  I am always continuing my education by taking classes through the University of San Diego.  I am currently up to Master's +40.  (I love telling the students I have homework, too!)

I have been in second grade almost exclusively, except for my first year I taught in 3rd grade.  Reading has always been my favorite subject, but I love teaching science to the kids. The students seem to love science and all the fun experiments we get to do. 

I am married to my high school sweetheart. We have been together for over 20 years. We have two young boys together.  We enjoy watching movies, reading books, and exploring nature together.  We are also huge Blackhawks fans!

I try my best to help each and every one of my students love learning.  I also try to help students have a Growth Mind Set, which helps students embrace challenges and be okay with making mistakes since we can learn from them.  Things that are not always easy are great for growing our brains and helping us grow and become people who don't give up easily. I look forward to helping your student reach his or her fullest potential!
