Hi! I’m Hermine-Jane, the mom behind Hooked On Stories.
After having my son, Michael, and transitioning into being a stay at home mom, I wanted to do something that would not only keep me occupied, but gave me the chance to share my brand new experience with other first time moms and first time stay at home moms.
I believe life is an endless storybook filled with different chapters and stories that teach us lessons on a daily basis. Some stories are hilarious while others are not. Each day of our lives happens for a reason. My journey is to find the meaning and reason for these days.
My whole life I’ve been into school, learning, and educating myself in any subject I could get my hands on. The college chapters of my life were a bit crazy since I was changing majors and trying to figure out what I wanted to do with my life. After changing majors from biology to chemistry, then from chemistry to English (I know, complete 180 degrees change) I decided I was going to go into education and become a teacher. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in English from California State University of Los Angeles, and a Master’s degree in Education from University of Phoenix. I do plan on pursuing my education and working towards a Ph.D. degree.
Aside from teaching high school English, I have also taught gymnastics, and directed a recreational program for ages 6-18. I have been working with children since I was 16 years old. Whether it was teaching gymnastics, substituting a classroom, or having my own classroom, I hope to take all the good and bad I’ve learned through my experience and apply it towards raising my own children.
With baby #2 on the way, I only wonder where this journey is going to lead me, and if I’m ready for it.
