The Review: Longview Public Schools – Summer 2019
Stefanie Hoyt, 4th grade teacher
St. Helens Elementary
A dedicated educator, Mrs. Hoyt finds her life’s mean-ing through teaching. She’s taught at private and public schools in Oregon and Washington. She’s beat cancer twice, and continued working even while going through chemo. Read the interview to learn about her amazing journey adopting two children, and what kept her going through two rounds of cancer treatments.
Brian Jensen, English teacher
Cascade Middle School
Anyone who has ever felt like they didn’t know what to do with their lives may be inspired by Mr. Jensen’s path to teaching. He spent two years biking through small towns in France before going to college; and then left college to roam for two more years trying several jobs that just weren’t quite right. Read the interview to see how he finally knew he wanted to be a teacher.
