“I am extremely honored to represent the county on the state level,” Hogan said in a press release. “Since being named the county Teacher of the Year, I have felt a greater responsibility to share all of the great work that goes on here. My students expect more from me, and I know that I must deliver.”
She began her career at South River in 1999 and is know in the school and throughout the county for her passion and love of language and culture, which Hogan shares with her students in multi-dimensional ways, according to a press release.
“I am absolutely thrilled by the news of Ms. Hogan’s selection as a finalist for Maryland Teacher of the Year,” South River High School Principal Will Myers said in a press release.
“She epitomizes the concept of a master teacher, combined with character, charm, and grace. Perhaps the greatest compliment I can give her is that if I could select only one special teacher for my own children, it would be Ms. Hogan," Myers stated.
Other Teacher of the Year finalists are Carol Garner of Allegany County; Ketia Stokes of Baltimore City; Sean McComb of Baltimore County; Steven Luthultz of Cecil County; George McGurl of Howard County; and Christina Ulrich of Montgomery County.
