Before & After School: Emma Hoggatt


My name is Emma Hoggatt, and I am the lead teacher for the Before and After school-age program. I am very excited to be working with your students this school year. I’ve worked at Country Dawn since July 2018. I started down at the Kindergarten building with the school age kids but then got the opportunity to be the lead Kindergarten teacher at the main building for the school year. I love watching kids grow and learn. I have wanted to be a teacher since before I was in school, in high school I took child development and careers in education classes and have gotten the opportunity to work with many kids in different grades to help me be able to give as much quality care as possible to your child.




    I have lived in Lake Stevens my whole life and graduated from Lake Stevens High School in 2018. I am currently getting my Elementary Education degree. I am fully trained in CPR, first aid and bloodborne pathogens. Working with kids has been something I’ve always wanted to do. All throughout high school I interned in classes throughout the Lake Stevens school district. This last year at Country dawn has been a dream for me and I’m so excited to be the lead teacher for all the 1st through 5th graders here!




    Outside of Country Dawn, I enjoy spending time with my little sister, my family and friends. Bike riding, playing volleyball and reading. I am very excited to get to know all of you and your kids. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me. My email is




 Information about the program:


I would like the start every afternoon with the kids at assigned table groups while we take attendance and have some time to talk with the kids about their days. From then we will separate the group into our two classrooms and follow our schedules! Every Friday we will either be doing a big art project or a cooking project before we start our movie for the day. Every Friday is movie day where the children can bring “G” or “PG” movies to share with the rest of our class. I love science and will be trying to have the kids do group science projects a few times a month. Monthly we follow a different theme which will be posted on our parent board and the theme will be announced every month in the newsletter. We will do art, science, writing and cooking project based on the themes.  At Country Dawn, we are all about safety, learning, and teaching. If your child needs help with, they can always come to me for help. I am so excited for this school year!
