    Rebecca Hogenson

    School Director

    Hi, I am Rebecca Hogenson. I am passionate with partnering with all families, new and old, to create the best experience for our students. I am always available, whether you want to voice a concern or talk about the latest and greatest happenings in your life. I enjoy Fall Festivals, Spring Fling Carnivals, holiday celebrations, graduations and school events where we can come together and celebrate each other as a family and community. I began working at Primrose in 2011 and have never looked back. I believe in our curriculum, our culture and our learning approach.

    I was married in July of 2016 to my husband Jimmy who works in the oil industry. Our son Declan was born in September of 2020 and attends Primrose. We also have two large dogs who keep things interesting at home. I love spending time with my family. Most weekends are spent visiting family and friends, as we eat, play and cherish our life together. I enjoy experiencing new things, trying new foods and exploring new places.

    My passion for early education began while working at my first preschool in 2008. Watching children grow and develop inspired me to continue a path of early education while in school. I started with Primrose as an Early Preschool teacher in 2011. While working with Primrose I have worked as a teacher, Administrative Assistant, Assistant Director, Curriculum Coach and School Director. I received my Director certification in 2014. I love partnering with parents to ensure you have the best experience possible at Primrose. I want parents to leave knowing your child will not only be safe and learning, but also knowing they are loved and having fun while they grow at school. I also strive to partner with teachers to ensure they have all the skills and tools needed to connect with your children to build a relationship of trust to encourage future learning and development.

    I cannot wait to get to know you and learn all about your little ones. Welcome to Primrose School of Copperfield and let the journey begin!
