PE & Art Teacher - Extended Care Program Director
Originating from Tulsa, Oklahoma Ms. Hoover moved out west in 2004 to attend college. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the San Francisco Art Institute in 2009. Upon graduating she managed a warehouse during the week and volunteered teaching art on Saturday mornings. This sparked her love of teaching and working with kids. Many years later she went on to obtain a Single Subject ‘Art’ Teaching Credential from SF State.
In the Fall of 2014 Ms. Hoover walked through St. Jarlath’s doors to apply for a substitute teaching position. She instead was offered a position teaching Second Grade half day. In 2015 she became the Art, P.E. and Extended Care Coordinator. Ms. Hoover loves engaging youth in creative ways, encouraging collaboration and bringing new ways of thinking into the classroom.
Ms. Hoover’s favorite quote, from Maya Angelou, inspires her teaching practice. “When you get, give. When you learn, teach.”
