Hello and welcome to 5th Grade!
My name is Molly Hooten and I am so excited to be teaching fifth grade at Cibolo Green! This is my fourth year as a teacher and second year at Cibolo Green. I have previously taught 5th grade in Plano, TX and Stafford, TX. Before teaching, I was the head coach for the men's golf team at Southeastern Oklahoma State University. Prior to that, I played professional golf on the Cactus and Symetra Tours.
I received my bachelors degree in Criminal Justice from the University of Arkansas Fort Smith and my graduate degree in Sports Administration from Southeastern Oklahoma State. I know you might be thinking, well how did someone with this background get into teaching? That's a fair thought! I decided to become a teacher while I was coaching. I absolutely loved coaching but wanted to do more. I saw some of the younger kids I knew being left behind in education and I wanted to help with that. I want to make sure all my students know I care about them as a whole human first and foremost, then I care to make sure their academics are on point. I truly love being a teacher and hope I convey that to my students!
I am married to my wonderful husband, Blake. We have two dogs, Baxter and Bucky. When I am not teaching I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, hiking, playing with our dogs, and binge watching our favorite shows.
I am so excited to be apart of the wonderful 5th grade team here at Cibolo Green and look forward to a great year with all my students!
