This is my 13th year teaching. I have taught everything from 5-8th grades. I love Science because the kids can learn with hands on activities. I feel Science isn't truly Science without labs as the labs teach the concepts in ways that the pictures in the books just can't. I am an auditory and kinesthetic learner, therefore I love doing labs and coming up with new and more interactive ways for the kids to show their understanding of our Science concepts.
I attended my first two years of High School at Billings West High, after which I moved to Saipan, a small island in the Pacific Ocean, where I finished out my High School and earned my BS in Education.
My husband, Richard Hoffman, works as a deputy sheriff. You will sometimes find him in class with me because he loves assisting me with some of the tougher labs.
My daughter, CJ, is attending college in Missouri and has her heart set on becoming an elementary teacher with an endorsement in library science.
