Hi. My name is Chelsea Hoglund and I am in my 5th year of teaching high school math. I currently teach at Bellevue East High School in Bellevue, Nebraska. This is my 2nd year at Bellevue East. My first three years of teaching I taught in Lincoln, Nebraska at Lincoln North Star. I have taught Algebra, Geometry, Advanced Algebra (Algebra II) and Algebra Support. I am currently teaching 5 sections of Algebra, two of which are Basic Algebra and one is cotaught Algebra. I also coach basketball and soccer at Bellevue East. I was born and raised in Hastings, Nebraska and went to Hastings College for my undergrad. I played soccer for Hastings. This year I have flipped my classroom so that is a new challenge and is very different from the previous four years of my teaching career. It has a lot of challenges, but also has a lot of rewards. It is a lot of work the first year, but I can see the improvement in my students.
