Hi! I'm Mrs. Gollhofer! I am thrilled you will be in my class this year. This is my 17th year of teaching. I am passionate about teaching and Math is my FAV. I enjoy using technology as much as I can. I LOVE teaching middle school students. We will learn so many cool things this year.
I also think it is very important to work together, as a classroom family. We will spend a lot of time together so its important to treat each other with respect, kindness, and compassion. I know that each of you have a different brain, which means you think and learn differently. It is my job as your teacher to help you grow as a learner and as a person of good character.
Want to know a little about me? When I'm not at school, you can find be working out, trying a new do-it-yourself project, or cheering on my kids. I love all sports, reading, and my fur-babies. I have three children, Peyton, Kyle and my son-in-law, Austin. Peyton graduated from Ball State University in May, where she played tennis and received her degree in Exercise Science. Peyton also just got married over the summer and is now pursuing her degree in nursing. Kyle graduated from Woodland High School in May and is headed to the University of Northern Iowa to wrestle and major in medicine. Cool fact, UNI and the Hurricanes have the same school colors. I have been married for 28 years to my husband, who was a Cartersville High School graduate. He is a Marine and works in Puerto Rico. I also have 3, sometimes 6, fur-babies. Peach and Nike are my sweet cats and Giselle is our precious German Shepherd. Giselle is my favorite running partner. I often like to kitten and puppy sit Peyton's fur-babies.
I can't wait to see how our year of excellence unfolds. The 2019-2020 school year is full of promise and opportunity. I challenge you to set some dreams that will stretch your limits. It only takes one person's bold actions to drastically change the world. To borrow from my teacher friend, "My students are my WHY!"
