Kindergarten is the best year!


    Hi!  I am Mrs. Hoelzen.  You and your child will have so much fun learning this year!  My teaching revolves around themes that I incorporate all the disciplines each day. Each theme has my children learning reading, writing, math, social studies, the arts,science and health and technology. Some of our themes include apples, bears, pumpkins, plants, animals, holidays and customs from other countries, life cycles, and numerous others."Being There" experiencesinclude The Phoenix Children's Museum, Snow Day on our playground, and a Pumpkin Patch!

    I have 36 years experience in early childhood, have a Master's degree in early childhood from NAU, an Early Childhood Endorsement from ASU, a Gifted Endorsement, and I am National Board Certified in Early Childhood. I am also the Arizona Teacher of the Year Ambassador for Excellence in Education.  I am the Gifted Cluster teacher for kindergarten.

    I have been at Copper Creek for the past 26 years in Room 4 teaching Kindergarten.  I love my students, families, staff and community where I work.  I can't imagine working anywhere else but Copper Creek.  I have the highest expectations for all my students and provide the best hands-on learning experiences possible.  Kindergarten is the best!

    I love my profession and I look forward to working with your child and you during the year. Please call me anytime with any questions you may have about kindergarten (623-376-3930).
