Luciana Hoeft

Spanish Teacher

Favorite Quote: “Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile.” -Mother Teresa


After growing up in Tucumán, Argentina, and attending University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Mrs. Hoeft immensely loves teaching Spanish language and sharing Hispanic culture here at PND. As a teacher, she loves it when her students report back that they were able to speak to someone new in Spanish, or when they express and interest in travel and immersion in a new culture to use their Spanish language skills. She feels so blessed to be able to share her passion for language teaching at PND and sees that passion blossom in them as well. When she isn’t at school, Mrs. Hoeft enjoys traveling to visit my family and visiting new places, cooking latin food, listening and dancing latin music, reading, painting, and enjoying the outdoors with her family. Fun fact: Mrs. Hoeft has lived in Latin America, the Middle East and several parts of the United States. She also has United States, Argentina and Spanish citizenship.
