Hello Bella Family!
My name is Maria Hoxmeier and this is my first year as the co-teaching instructional coach at Bella Romero Academy. I have been in education since 2011 and was a 5th grade teacher in District 6 before becoming an instructional coach. I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Indiana University (GO HOOSIERS!) and my Master's Degree in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies from the University of Northern Colorado. While earning my degree at IU, I was fortunate enough to travel to Australia, Europe, and Africa. After I graduated with my degree, I moved to Europe to complete my student teaching in Ireland and then lived in Spain for a year to teach English to children and adults. After leaving Europe, I moved to Colorado where I met my wonderful husband who shares a love of the great outdoors with me. You can find us hiking with our dog on the weekends and we love going up to the mountains whenever we can.
I am very excited to be a Romero Wolf!
