I felt called to teach when I was a senior at Heritage Christian School! I knew from working in ministries that I had a passion for children. It was as an adult that I went back to school to finish my education. My favorite part of teaching is when you see the light bulb click on in their head! I love the expression on the student’s face and celebrating small accomplishments with them! My husband and I have two amazing daughters who are students at HCS and one older daughter as a student at PCC. My favorite hobbies are reading, cooking, and making my home cozy.

I Timothy 2:20-21 “But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.

I love all things creative and am thankful for the talents the Lord has given to me.  I have always enjoyed working with children.  I am excited to be working with the K4 students at HCS.

Micah 6:8, “He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?”

I'm the wife of Doug Hoffman and a mother of four. I love gardening, reading, and being outdoors. My favorite part of teaching is the opportunity I have each day to impact young, moldable lives. I love watching the growth, academically, and spiritually in a child. It’s exciting to see the change and excitement as they grasp a new concept and develop a love of learning.

Proverbs 16:21 “…and the sweetness of the lips increaseth learning.”

Isaiah 40: 26 “Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth.”

“Be a lifter, not a leaner!”

I have felt the call to be a teacher since I was in elementary school. After graduating from college in 2005, the first grade position opened and I was able to return to Heritage to teach. A few years ago I moved to second grade. I love when my students love to read and when they work hard to learn new concepts. I love to travel and spend time with my family, especially my niece and five nephews.

Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”

My mom was an elementary teacher for over 15 years before she met my dad and they were married. As a child, when we went out, we would always run into former students, or former parents of students that she had taught. The one thing they always had in common was that she had been a strict teacher, but that she had been wonderful. They would then tell her about what they were up to (by the time I was growing up, her former students were adults), and what an impact she had made in their lives. I remember thinking about how many people she impacted, and knowing that that was exactly what I wanted to do with my life. Now that I am grown and I get to be the teacher, I am so blessed to have the responsibility of impacting my own classroom for Christ. Proverbs 22:6, “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it,” has been in my mind as I consider what my students are capable of, and making sure that I am doing my part at school to train them for future service throughout their lives.

The best part of teaching is seeing children grow in their skills day by day, line upon line, precept upon precept.  In the past I have taught grades 1-6, 7th grade literature, K-12
music/choir, and special education.

My personal interests are music and spending time with my eight wonderful grandchildren.

Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”

“Attitude determines response.”

I was called to teach at fifteen, watching students’ faces as they “get it.” I have a mom, dad, brother, sister, and three dogs. Reading, playing the violin, and talking with people are my favorite things to do. I love coffee and Jewish Missions.

Proverbs 31:30 “Favor is deceitful and beauty is vain, but a woman that fears the Lord, she shall be praised.”

I’ve always wanted to be a Christian school teacher. It is a joy to see students learn new things. I especially love to teach Bible, Language Arts, and History. It’s wonderful to see children grow spiritually as well as academically. Larry and I have two children, Thad and Alisa, as well as five lovely grandchildren. I like to play with my grandchildren, scrapbooking, and singing in the choir.

I Corinthians 15:58 “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.”

Psalms 16:11 “Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.”

It is amazing how God orchestrates events in our lives. Before I had children, I worked for Cleveland Public Schools. I loved every minute of it; it was my mission field. My husband, Jason, and I were blessed with four handsome boys. I was thankful I had the opportunity to stay at home with them for twelve years. All four boys are enrolled in Heritage Christian School and I love that our boys grow spiritually and academically.  Now that I am a teacher at Heritage Christian School, I have found my new mission field! I am so thankful that the Lord placed my family here to serve and minister to others.

Psalm 62:5-8
“My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him. He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved. In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God. Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.”

God gave me a desire to teach when I was young. I love spending time with my family. I also enjoy playing the piano.
