Biography:
My name is Katherine (Katie) Hooper, this is my second year with the Academy of Arts and Sciences. I began with this amazing school 2 years ago and was am excited to meet all the amazing families. I have a Liberal Studies degree and Multiple Subject credential from California State University Long Beach. I taught for a year after graduating in 2001 and then was blessed with staying home with my two beautiful daughters for about 10 years. I then decided to go back to work. Before coming to AAS I worked for another online school program for about 3 years. I am looking forward to working with my new group of kindergartners and 1st graders. The best part of my job is helping my learning coaches with the sometimes difficult task of homeschooling young children. The ability to help my students and families is an awesome responsibility. I look forward to working with each and every one of my families to give your children the best education possible. Happy Learning, Mrs.Hooper

Biography:
I obtained a BA in Child Development from CSUN. I also received my Multiple Subject Clear Credential from CSUN, with CLAD accreditation. My experience in teaching ranges from Dance Teacher, Reading First Teacher, Preschool Teacher/Taught special programs, Intercession Teacher for kids that need to catch up, and tutoring foster youth all over Ventura County. I also worked at a C.A.R.E. home for boys as an overnight child care worker. My passion is to offer a quality education to all students, across different cultural backgrounds, with different learning needs, and with an equal opportunity for higher education or other types of training for a top notch career. One funny thing about me is that I tried to learn to surf on my new 9’ surfboard many years ago and had to give it up for safety reasons.
