Ms. Susan Hoaglund, The Greene School 2018 District Teacher of the Year, has been a critical member of The Greene School (TGS) for the past twelve years. As the creator of our initial music program, she designed TGS’s program to reflect the requirements of the charter school curriculum. Ms. Hoaglund not only teaches music, but also teaches German (four levels), and drama.
Last year the University of Rhode Island (URI) approved Ms. Hoaglund to teach the only concurrent enrollment class we offer at TGS, German 101. As a result, students can take this class in either German II or III and receive URI college credits for it.
As a testament to her outstanding teaching skills, TGS’s German students have received gold medals on the National German Exam for four consecutive years.
Ms. Hoaglund is also one of the first two teachers to offer an Early Enrollment Program (EEP) class at TG EEP Survey of Music.
Reflective of her deep commitment to TGS students, Ms. Hoaglund is TGS’s senior class advisor, yearbook advisor, and is the founder and advisor of our National Honor Society. Always having the best interests of our students in mind, she was also responsible for initiating our Senior Class Night and Graduation Ceremony. Read more!
