About the Teacher

Emily Hobbs is one of the few remaining staff members who was around when SLMS opened its doors in the year 2000.  There is a reason she is still around; she loves where she is!  Prior to teaching English Language Arts 7 at Summit Lakes, she taught 3 years at Pleasant Lea Middle School.  

Mrs. Hobbs' home town is Iowa City, Iowa which explains why she and her whole family are Iowa Hawkeye fans.  The fall is a busy season as she, her husband, and two teen-aged sons travel back for their season tickets to the games. The University of Iowa is where she got her BA degree in French Education with a minor in English, and a Master's Degree in English Education.  She taught French to 4th-8th graders for 7 years.
