Mrs. Connie Hoefer
Most enjoyable aspects of your teaching ministry: I enjoy being able to share my faith openly without fear of reprisal.
What are your hobbies? During my free time, I like to quilt, do a bit of gardening, and of course play with my grandkids.
What is your favorite flavor of ice-cream? I don't eat much ice cream, but I like the chocolate/vanilla swirl at B&G.
What is your favorite Bible verse? Isaiah 40:31 ~ "They who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not faint."
Where else can we find you in the community? I spend time at Resurrection Lutheran Church leading a women's Bible study, chairing the Discipleship committee, and serving on council. I also run the slide show for services.
Tells us about your college education. I earned both a Bachelor's (secondary math) and Master's degrees (Math curriculum) at Augustana. I have been teaching since 1976. My first year was in Omaha, NE, and the rest of the time in Sioux Falls. I have taught 7th grade math at Patrick Henry and at Memorial Middle Schools. For a few years, I taught other grade levels but always 7th grade. When I "retired" I was asked to teach one class of Algebra at Lutheran High and have now been on staff for 5 years and have taught Algebra 1 and 2, Geometry, and even pre-calculus. I enjoy the small setting and the kids as well as the faith-based education.
