Hello! I am very excited to be the fourth grade teacher here at Luther Memorial Academy. I am originally from Erie, PA, but moved to Phoenix, AZ in 2002. My husband, my son, Luca, and I lived in Phoenix for six years. I taught several special education classes, but my all time favorite class was teaching fourth grade at Trinity Lutheran School. To this day I still keep in touch with my first class of fourth graders.
While living in Phoenix, I was blessed to have had my daughter, Tara Elizabeth. I loved living in Phoenix and teaching, but I really missed my family. In 2008, the Hokaj family relocated to Erie and we have been here ever since.
I am so blessed and excited to be a part of Luther Memorial Academy teaching staff, and I look forward to a great year of teaching.
I have many, many activities, but mostly I love to travel and swim. My family just recently took up two new sports which I have fallen in love with, sailing and skiing. I really like sailing over skiing, but they are both fun. Some interesting facts about me: I love sea turtles and my favorite color is green.
