Lafayette Elementary School

Third Grade Teachers

Chloe Hoff - 225

My name is Chloe Hoff and I teach 3rd grade in Room 225.  I received my Bachelor’s of Arts Degree in Liberal Studies with an emphasis in Special Education and Elementary Teaching from San Francisco State University, and earned a Master’s Degree in Education from the University of San Francisco.

My ultimate goal as a teacher is to promote tolerance, inclusion, and diversity both inside and outside of the classroom, and to encourage children to be the best students and people that they can possibly be.  Through individual work, small group work, and large group work, the students in Room 225 work together to explore both academic concepts as well as social emotional concepts.

Together, the students and I learn from one another to build our social skills, emotional skills, and academic skills.  I am so fortunate to be apart of the amazing Lafayette community, and look forward to watching the students continue to blossom throughout the school year!
