My name is Sandy Hollstegge. I was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. Inspired by my mom (who always wanted to be a teacher but never had the chance) and my incredible ninth grade English teacher, Ms. Razor, I completed my undergraduate education at the University of Cincinnati, earning a Bachelors of Arts degree. Later, I earned a Masters degree in education from Marygrove College. I have been teaching for twenty-four years, twenty-two of those at Whitewater Valley Elementary.In my opinion, I have a great job and think fourth grade is lots of fun.
I am very involved with lots of activities at WVE. I have been a Drama Club director for many years. I am the AR Coordinator and am involved with the PTA. I was the Technology Coordinator for the building until recently, which means I was responsible for all of the computers, printers, and tech. equipment in the building. I'm known as a computer geek, but I take that as a compliment!
When I am not teaching, I enjoy reading, playing with and walking my dog, ZuZu, watching movies, working with computers, making teaching products, planting in my flower gardens, and spending time with my family and friends. I also enjoy making crafts, tackling home improvement projects, and being creative in any way.
In 2009, I was honored to receive the Hamilton County Excellence in Education Award, which recognized one outstanding teacher in each school district. I have also been named PTA Educator of the Year and WVE Educator of the Year (twice). I was nominated for the Disney Teacher of the Year award as well.
