Huge congratulations to Señora Hoeft, who was named Outstanding Teacher of the Year for Peoria Notre Dame! Señora Hoeft was selected for this award by the PND faculty/staff. Some of their words of praise for Luciana include:
She has completely re-energized the Spanish department from helping students obtain the Seal of Biliteracy to preparing them for the Spanish AP and AAPPL exams. Her lessons are engaging and effective, she constantly reflects on her instruction and her students’ abilities, and she ensures that students can speak, write, and read in Spanish. PND is so lucky to have her energy, enthusiasm, and teaching prowess for our students. She is a ray of positivity in our school!
Thank you to the the Peters Family & the Kiwanis Club of Peoria for sponsoring this award and event! Congratulations to the other award recipients: Jennifer Sullivan, Alex Robinson, Dana Sanders, Amanda Hidden, and Geoffrey Rhoades.
