Hello and welcome to STEM School Highlands Ranch!
My name is Katie Hoffman and I am entering my fifth year here at STEM. I will be teaching 8th grade Social Studies, Accelerated 8th grade Social Studies, and one section of Government/Geography.
I grew up in northern Colorado and attended Colorado State University where I obtained a BA in History and secondary education. I spent many years after graduation working with my father's insurance business before I moved to Wyoming and returned to education. I spent a year working with Occupational and Physical Therapists in an educational setting. This experience has provided a unique perspective of the importance of meeting the needs of each student. I returned from Wyoming in 2015.
I have taught both 6th and 8th grade here at STEM and I am looking forward to developing innovative lessons this year.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, cooking, reading, watching movies, listening to music, and enjoying the diverse opportunities around me.
