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.
