Welcome to 2nd Grade!
My name is Vanessa Hoffman and I am so excited to be your child's 2nd grade teacher! This is my fourth year teaching, but my first year teaching 2nd grade. I graduated from the University of Minnesota with bachelors degrees in 2012...go gophers! I then completed my master's degree from Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa in 2016. I live with my fiance, Josh, our cat, Missy, and our dog, Luna, in White Bear Lake. In my spare time I enjoy going on walks, reading, and coaching and watching gymanstics.
You may see my name as Mrs. Levy on some websites and addresses, but that is because I am getting married this October! 2nd grade is a year of fun, learning, and lots of growth. This year we will do lots of reading, writing, science, and social studies activities this year. Our Stem-H unit is about the digestive system. In our classroom we will also build a positive classroom community where each child feels special and important. We will learn that we are stronger together!
If you have any questions or comments throughout the year, please do not hesitate to reach out! Let's have a great year in 2VH!
