Lynne Hosey - First/Second Grade Looping
2012-2013 Teacher of the Year
Lynne Hosey, a first/second grade teacher at Jarman, was named the school’s Teacher of the Year for 2012-2013 by her peers.
As Hosey was growing up, she admired her dad who devoted his life to education. “Because of his influence and my love children, I chose to become a teacher,” Hosey said.
“Hands on activities that motivate and engage all students are my favorite teaching methods,” Hosey said.
Hosey enjoys children and believes she can help them as they wade into their own futures.
“I observe my students facing continual changes in their lives,” Hosey said. “They have to learn coping skills due to the effects of financial uncertainties of families, changes in family dynamics, mobility of families due to changes of employment, etc. They must also adapt to the many changes in the world of technology.”
Hosey began her teaching career in 1977. “Union Public Schools was known as an up and coming school district with endless opportunities for teachers. I was fortunate to become part of it. I have had the privilege of being a staff member who helped open Roy Clark, Jarman and Jefferson,” Hosey said.
Hosey said, “My goal is to continue to increase my knowledge of the best practices in education and to implement them in my classroom.
Hosey received her bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Oklahoma Christian University and her master’s degree as a reading specialist from Northeastern State University. She has amassed more than 30 additional hours above a master’s degree in school administration.
