Meet Mrs. Hoch

My name is Rachel Hoch-Cushman (known as Mrs. Hoch at OLG) and I have been the 2nd grade teacher at Our Lady of Guadalupe School since 2004. This year I am delighted & blessed to be “jumping up” to third grade! Before coming to OLG, I spent 10 years working in University ministry and faith formation at Colorado State University. I received my teaching certificate from the University of Northern Colorado (UNC) in 2004, and completed my Masters of Arts in Teaching degree through UNC in 2007.

It was an exciting summer of learning and adventures. In June, I taught an Art & Music camp for OLG students. We had so much fun learning about different styles of art, music, & dance from several European countries. During the summer months, I delight in spending time with my family, enjoying the beauty of God’s creation. My husband, two kiddos (ages 6 and 4), and I love adventuring! This year we spent 3 weeks camping through Washington state, followed by 3 weeks on the east coast visiting family & playing on the beach at Chincoteague Island in VA. It was so much fun to spend the entire summer being together in the great outdoors. Our family looks forward to many more outdoor adventures in the coming year!

Here at Guadalupe, I’m excited to journey through the year with the third graders and their families as we grow together in academics and faith!
