Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Jennifer Hoot. I have taught in PISD for 23 years including Massey Ranch for 13 years. I have enjoyed teaching first and second grades, along with Pre-K. I was also reading coach for several years for kindergarten through fourth grade. However, teaching first grade is my passion. I love watching children's faces light up when they begin to understand a concept. Teaching reading is my favorite part of teaching. It is simply magical to see how a first grader learns to read better and better throughout the year.
I am a single mom and live with my three children. Rachel is a sophomore and cheers for Pearland High School. Trey just graduated and is pursuing a career in the oil field. Travis is in college working on a degree in business. My great-neice is 5 and is at my house most weekends. Her name is Ryleigh and I will talk about her at times with my students as she makes me laugh on a weekly basis with all her shenanigans.
I am an avid reader and foodie. I love reading books and love trying new restaurants. I am currently reading books by my favorite speaker and author, Brene Brown. I also enjoy traveling to new cities and visiting museums. During the fall, I can also be found sitting on my couch cheering for the Houston Texans and in the spring...the Houston Astros! I love watching sports!
I look forward to a great year with all my firsties!
