Mrs. Hoeft loves to teach, knit, read, sing, play piano, bake and most of all, spend time with family. She has vast teaching experiences over the past 40 years, across four states, including primary self-contained classrooms, junior high science, math, music, ELA, advanced/gifted learners, as well as teaching job skills to 14-21 year olds.

For as St. Catherine of Sienna said, "Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire!"
