I began working for Thatcher Schools in the year 2000 as a substitute. I worked in grades K- 12 and gained valuable experience and insights from some of the best teachers. In 2012, I was fortunate enough to become a 4th grade teacher at Thatcher Elementary.  


I grew up in Animas, a small town in New Mexico. I graduated from High School in 1986, got married, began working, had kids, and was very busy having fun raising a family. Today, I'm still married to the same wonderful man and have two grown kids. They were lucky enough to go through the Thatcher School system and experience the close knit community your kids are growing up in.

I love playing games, reading books, and being around kids. I've always been happiest around kids, so being an educator is a dream job for me. My goal in the classroom is to be a positive, fearless, and inspiring force to all my students. I want them feel successful and to become responsible for their own learning. I also think it is important to be a role model and show them by example,that being kind to one another and having a positive attitude will only help them to be better people and more successful students.  One of my favorite quotes by Aristotle says it best, "Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all."

I believe having open communication with parents is beneficial to each student's success. Please feel free to email me anytime at hogan.karen@thatcherud.org  or call 928-387-8452      after 2:15.
