Meet the Teacher





Dear Families, 


     My name is Mary Christensen, and I will be your child’s 3rd grade teacher this year.  I’m looking forward to getting to know your child, and I want to take this opportunity to give you some information about myself. 


     I graduated from Eastern Michigan University with a Bachelor of Science in Education and also received a Master’s in the Art of Teaching.  My first year teaching experience was in a 3rd grade classroom at a christian academy in Dearborn followed by teaching for the past nine years here at Hoover in both 2nd and 3rd grade. 


We welcomed our first child, Corinne Camille, on March 21st 2010.  Our summer was filled with new and exciting experiences with our little miracle. My husband and I love and cherish every moment with her.  We also have a dog named Jet who is a little jealous of the new addition to our family.  As the summer comes to a close, I’m so excited for the school year to begin. 


     I believe a positive relationship between home and school is essential.  The lines of communication will always be open.  As a parent, YOU are the most important person in your child’s life.  We can team together to build a support for your child’s success.  I believe every child is capable of achievement, and our classroom will be filled with diverse ways of encouraging this.  My goal this year is to fully dedicate myself to help your child reach his or her full potential.  


     Your child is an important part of our classroom family, where they will receive encouragement and support from both their peers and myself.  As your child leaves your caring home environment, one of my goals is for them to come to school and experience the same type of atmosphere.  I look forward to an outstanding year.
