This is going to be an exciting and wonderful school year! I am so excited to begin this new journey with you!  I am honored and thrilled to be your child's teacher! This year is EXTRA exciting for me because I will be co-teaching again this year.  We will be very busy this year learning and growing!  Mr. Napier is a very energetic teacher and we work VERY well together!  I am a very hands-on teacher and I believe that school is more than reading, writing, and math. In our class, every student will be treated with respect, kindness, care and compassion.  I believe in mixing humor and laughter with the seriousness of education.  I strongly believe that every child who enters our classroom wants to grow, learn and be successful. I am ready and willing to work with you to give you everything you need for success.  Please do not hesitate to talk to Mr. Napier or myself if you are having a problem in the class.  Mr. Napier & I both believe that when students, teachers and parents work together, students reap the amazing benefits!

Mr. Joshua Napier

Hello! Welcome back to another exciting and fun-fuilled school year. This year is especially exciting because YOUR student will have two teachers, Mrs. Cogar and myself. We are both so ready to do some great things this year with your children to help them grow into responsible young adults. 

As for me, this is my 5th year teaching and 2nd year as a co-teacher. I graduated from Eastern Illinois University with a Bachelor's Degree in Special Education. While at EIU I was also on the wrestling team. Aside from being your student's teacher, I coach football and am the Head Wrestling Coach at Hickory Creek Middle School in Frankfort, IL. Over the past summer I was married to my college sweetheart, who also teaches. We have three dogs and some other pets, but no kids of our own yet!  I am so excited to bring my energy and expertise to a classroom with a teacher like Mrs. Cogar, who complements my skills and personality with some unique things herself.
