All About Me

Subject Taught

3rd Grade 


I am a Barry High School Graduate, and attended John Wood College and Hannibal La Grange University.  I have an associates degree in computer science, and a bachelors degree in elementary and secondary education.



I completed my student teaching at Higbee in Pittsfield, Illinois and worked at West Pike as a part-time aide and computer teacher for 1 year.  In 1989 I began teaching full-time at West Pike and now Western.  This will be my 29th year teaching.



    I grew up in Barry and married Mark Hoskins, also from Barry.  We live on Pratt Street in Barry and have three grown children and a new daughter-in-law: Alex & Amanda, Derek, and Erica.  


    I enjoy reading, gardening, swimming, biking, and spending time with my family.
