Mrs. Paula Hooss
Welcome to my webpage! I am so excited about coaching at Lester! I love helping with reading and writing because it is the foundation of all educational success. I believe each student is created uniquely with special abilities that make a positive impact on our world. I love enabling students to achieve to their highest potential along their educational journey.
My education incudes a BA in Psychology and an Education Credential from the University of South Carolina. I received a Masters of Elementary Education from Francis Marion University. I have a Literacy Coach and Literacy Specialist endorsement. I earned my Masters Plus 30 in the field of technology. I have been National Board Certified since 2001. I also have strong character beliefs and value character education.
I am married and have two married sons. I cherish spending time with them as well as my parents. I love photography and taking pictures of my family and nature. Each year, I use our special memories to create photo albums.
I love music! I love to try to play the piano and listen to all genres. Contemporary Christian is my faviorite. My personal goal is to play piano to serve God. I also love nature and being outside. My favorite place to be is at the beach walking in the fresh ocean breeze, biking, or paddling the marsh in my kayak. I also love to travel and experience other cultures.
I look forward to knowing all students and their families at Lester. Please feel free to contact me at anytime for any literacy or educational need.
