One of the favorite activities in 5th grade is the wax museum. It is happening today and they would love for you to stop by and take a look. The students have worked hard to get their research complete, costumes ready, and parts memorized. Each class has done an amazing job!

Most of you have seen Mrs. Hansen around our school, in classrooms, on the playground and in the office for the last 4 years. She does a lot for our teachers and we will miss her when she retires at the end of the school year.

She graduated from BYU in elementary ed. and began teaching in Spanish Fork in second grade at Park Elementary then at Larsen Elementary where she spent eighteen years teaching second and third grade. She then moved to East Meadows Elementary to be a facilitator, worked for BYU as a CFA, and then here at Hobble Creek where she has spent the last four years of her career as our facilitator. She has worked for Nebo School District for 33 years!She says, "I'm excited to be a grandma and have more free time to play and spend time with family and friends when I retire."

Mrs. Hansen is from Spanish Fork and still lives there. She has three children, one boy and twin girls. Zac lives in Heber, Katelyn is engaged and plans to get married in September and Karlee and her husband Tanner live in Payson with her darling granddaughter Mallie. Both of her daughters are elementary school teachers. Mrs. Hansen loves riding her bike, going to outdoor concerts and going to Lake Powell with her family. 

We will miss you Mrs. Hansen, thank you for making Hobble Creek and many other schools in Nebo School District Great!

We have terrific teachers here at Hobble Creek. This week we are spot lighting the 5th grade team. We are sad to announce that Ms. Sant will be retiring at the end of the school year and wish her the very best in wherever her new path takes her. Make sure to say hi over the next few months, she has had a big impact as a facilitator and teacher at our school over the last 14 years. She has received many awards over her many years as a teacher. Her favorite sport is football, she loves German chocolate cake and popcorn. She loves to laugh, read and watch movies. She especially loves spending time with her family and traveling to see them. She may go on a cruise to Alaska this summer. We hope you do! Enjoy

Mrs. Wayment has also put in many years as a teacher and has taught other grades in addition to 5th. She loves the color Red, the book To kill a Mockingbird, and chocolate. She loves football and Italian food. She travels a lot with her husband and family in the summer and looks forward to relaxing on the beach. She can wiggle her eyeballs, wants to learn how to knit a snowhat and would love a self cleaning house. (wouldn't we all)

Mrs. Wilson has taught at our school 2 years and recently was awarded the Daily Herald "Educator of the Week" award. She is from Kansas City, MO and loves watching baseball especially the Royals and BYU football. Her favorite color is Pink and her favorite book is Frindle by Andrew Clements. She likes chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream, Diet Coke and Reeses's peanut butter cups. She enjoys baking and cooking, watching movies and reading. She is going to MO this summer to watchs some Royals games and visit family. She hopes to finally catch a foul ball at a game. (Good luck!)

Ms. Johnson has also taught at our school for 3 years and loves teaching. She is from Gilbert, AZ and graduated from BYU. She loves basketball, badminton, tennis and football. She loves the colors pink, navy and eating chocolate.  She hopes to go to the beach this summer and read a lot of books. She especially loves this time of year to quilt and enjoy the wonderful weather. We are lucky to have her here at Hobble Creek. She is always happy and has a fun, spunky personality.
