    Hello and Welcome to Mr. Hoelscher's Webpage!
    Educational Background: All of my schooling has taken place in Berks County.  In 2003, I graduated from Muhlenberg High School in Laureldale, PA.  I then attended Albright College in Reading, PA.  During my time at Albright, I played four years of football for the Lions.  In the fall of 2006, I was named a second team Academic All-American and our athletic conference's Football Scholar Athlete of the Year.  I graduated in the Spring of 2007 with a B.A. in Child and Family Studies and an elementary education concentration.  I returned to Albright in the fall of 2007 to obtain my Pennsylvania K-6 teaching certificate.  I student taught at the Reiffton School in fifth grade and at 13th and Union Elementary School (Reading S.D.) in third grade. Since entering the classroom, I have finished my coursework for my Master's Degree in Classroom Technology through Wilkes University. 
    Classroom Experience: After becoming certified, I worked as a day-to-day substitute teacher in the Muhlenberg and Exeter school districts for three months.  From March 2008-June 2008, I worked as a long-term substitute in third grade at the former M.L. Lausch Elementary School.  I was hired by Exeter before the 2008-2009 school year.  This is my twelfth year at Reiffton School and my eighth as a member of Team E.  My first four years were spent as a self-contained teacher on Team D. 
    Personal Information: My wife and I live in Berks County along with our son, Ian, and our daughter, Lauren.  The fall of 2019 is my eleventh as an assistant football coach at Exeter High School.  As you can imagine, sports play a pretty significant role in my life.  When I'm not watching or coaching football, I enjoy spending time with close friends and family, golfing, going to restaurants, taking trips, and brushing up on stupid and useless facts.   
    and the journey to the Junior High begins...
