Ms. Amy Hoober

This is my 18th year at Springs Ranch, and I'm thrilled to work at such a great school. I received my bachelor's and master's of science degrees in elementary and special education from Kansas State University. I've taught students in preschool through 8th grade in Kansas, Oregon, Alaska and Colorado. I have over  24 years experience in education. I also have extensive training beyond my degrees in Literacy and Mathematics instruction, assessment, and data collection/analysis.
