TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have more than 25 years of teaching experience, all at the same school in rural northern California. For most of those years, I was a classroom teacher in grades 1, 2, and 3--and one memorable year, I taught a K-1-2 combo! I've also been a curriculum coach for reading and math, and a Title 1 intervention teacher, working with K-5 students who struggle with reading and math.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My goal has always been to make learning as hands-on and engaging as possible. I love using games whenever possible; when children are playing a game, they are relaxed and having fun--the perfect environment for learning!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I served on the board of the California Reading Association (an affiliate of the International Literacy Association) for several years, and had the honor of serving as president for two years. My Shining Teacher Moment was when a student who had struggled with reading that year gave me a note that said, "Thank you, Mrs. Hoff. You have made me LOVE reading!"

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies (a multi-disciplinary major) and a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential for Grades K-6.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I've been married for over 40 years, and am the proud mother of two wonderful, caring, generous, intelligent, talented, and witty children (all of which comes from my amazing husband). My daughter is a librarian, my son is an engineer, and my husband is a retired school administrator.
