I Graduated from Washburn University in 2002 with a Bachelor of Arts in English Education degree. I have been teaching Language Arts at Santa Fe Trail since the fall of 2002. Over the past 11 years, I have taught all four grade levels. I was a cheerleader sponsor from 1998 to 2005. I have been an assistant director for the fall musical and the spring play for 16 years. I have been married to Gary Hoffsommer for over 30 years. I have four children and three stepdaughters. There are 23 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren in our family. Basketball is my favorite sport, but I enjoy watching many other sporting events as well. I jog 2-3 miles a day and bike 15-20 miles a week. My hobbies are reading, working all kinds of puzzles, and sewing. I enjoy spending time with my grandchildren and attending their many activities. Besides keeping up with the kids, we have 4 dogs who are part of our family: Liberty, a mixed breed; Belle, a German shorthair; O’Reilly, a schnauzer; and Athena, a Great Dane.
