About Mr. Hoisington
I grew up in Seattle, Washington, Billings, Montana, and Battle Ground, Washington. My parents imbued in me a desire to dig deep holes, build anything, and create gigantic gardens of beauty and produce. I’ve always loved science and math, but somehow finished college with a degree in English Lit (and a lot of extra math and science!). I like playing my guitar anywhere, especially when kids are around.
I began teaching at Boeckman Creek Primary (Wilsonville) in 1995, and taught first through fifth grade for 14 years. During that time I found great joy in creating learning communities that challenge and encourage my students.
At the same time I married and now have two kids, Rose (21...Go Ducks!) and Kevin (18...Go Vikings!). They like digging holes, too.2014 progressAlmost done!
