Third Grade Teachers

Karla Hoffman

I teach third grade and I am married and have two children and have two Goldendoodles named Ted and Annie and I love pizza, Cleveland Cavs, OSU Buckeye Football and the colors navy blue and purple. I also love the ocean and planting flowers. 

I love to work and team together with parents to help make their child successful in school.

​Mary Cook

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! I am, Mary Cook, and I am a 3rd grade teacher at Taft Elementary. This will be my 10th year in education. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education through Youngstown State University, with a Reading Endorsement. I am currently adding to my education by pursuing my Master's in Educational Leadership/Administration. My husband (Zack) and I have a 2 year old boy, named Jack, and also live with our little yapper, Henry. We both grew up in Youngstown, on the South Side, and believe in our city and the change happening in our city schools! Together, we can make a difference!
