    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 thirteenth year at Reiffton School and my ninth 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.  Including this year, I have been involved with the football program at Exeter High School for twelve years. As you can imagine, sports play a pretty significant role in my life.  When I'm not watching sports, 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...
