Hello students and families,
My name is Courtney Hoit. I started teaching 8th grade mathematics at Diamond Canyon in 2017. During the summer of 2020, I taught Algebra 2 through the Pathways program. Starting 2020-2021 I will be teaching Algebra 1/2 and Algebra applications for Mountain Ridge High School as well as the Pathways program. Previous to teaching I worked in finance for 8 years. My love of education, children, and mathematics brought me to teaching. I enjoy the middle school and high school age children and see it as an important time to instill a love of learning and an appreciation for math before students leave high school to achieve their goals in college or career. I truly believe that each child is unique and has great potential to be successful in their endeavors.
I received my bachelors of science in elementary education from the University of Phoenix. I am certified in elementary and secondary education and highly qualified to teach middle school and high school mathematics. I am currently working on my masters degree at the University of Phoenix. In my free time I enjoy hiking, boating, camping, and other outdoor activities with my husband and our two Australian shepherds.
