Kindergarten: Mrs. Sarah Hoppe
651-842-6051,
shoppe@presentationofmary.org
Experience: 16 years teaching experience; 14 at St. Croix Catholic School in Stillwater in Kindergarten and 1st Grade
Education: Bachelor’s Degree from Augsburg College in 2000 with a major in elementary education. Two years later, I joined a learning community through St. Mary’s and earned a Master’s Degree in curriculum and instruction. My focus of study was community building in the classroom and sparking beginning readers.
Philosophy: I am so excited to be the new kindergarten teacher at Presentation! I feel that something magical happens to students in their first few years of school. I am so blessed to be a part of that magic!
Hobbies: I live in North St. Paul with my husband, daughter, son, and two cats. We spend much of our family time on Upper Turtle Lake in Wisconsin. In the summer we enjoy swimming, boating, and spending time with friends. In the winter my family enjoys ice fishing, sledding, and playing in the snow. I am not 100% on board with the outdoor winter activities. I much prefer the warm weather!
