Welcome to the class website for The First Grade Frogs in Ms. Hoefer's class at Mill Creek Elementary.
My name is Christy Hoefer and I am so excited to be your child's first grade teacher. This is my 10th year at Mill Creek Elementary. Before coming to MCE I taught first and second grade at Monroe Elementary, which is also part of the Everett Public Schools. In addition to first grade I've also taught a 2/3 split, 3rd grade and 4th grade in the Bellingham and Central Kitsap School Districts. I graduated from Seattle Pacific University with degrees in English and Education and I am just starting my MS in Reading at Fort Hays State University!
First grade is a time of new beginnings for children. It is often a child's first time in school all day, the first time to each lunch at school, and the first time a child sees him or herself as a reader. As a teacher, I feel honored to be on this journey of "firsts" with your child.
