Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Raymond Hoffman. I will be your fifth grade teachler this year at Baum Elementary. I am excited and looking forward to the new school year. This will be my first year as a fifth grade teacher. I was formally a teacher assistant for DPS61 for three years. I also have ten years of experience teaching English as a second language. I have spent five years in different parts of China teaching various ages English as a second language. I have also spent time as an assistant in a Montessori school setting. I hope to bring all these experiences to create an enriching learning environment for all my students. When it comes to interests, I enjoy traveling, hiking, reading, writing poetry and taking my pet beagle on walks. I am very excited to meet all of you!
