Mr. Hoffman

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!
