I am Mrs. Hoekzema and I teach 5th & 6th Grade. The best part about teaching at Legacy is, of course, the people — the students, the staff, the parents and families. It is such a blessing to be part of a community that is working together toward the shared goal of building the kingdom of God on earth.
When I am not at school I love to read and spend time with my grandchildren. My husband and I also love to travel and go for long walks and bike rides.
If I could travel anywhere in the world, I would love to visit New Zealand or Australia.
My favorite Bible verse is Ephesians 2:4-5 (NLT) – “But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much, that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved!)”
My DEEP HOPE for my students is that they EXPLORE God’s creation with curiosity, DISCOVER new things with awe, and RESPOND in love to what they find.
