Mrs. Hoste is thrilled to be joining the Centennial faculty next fall in the math department. She has been a member of the math team at Casey for the last seven years, and she is particularly passionate about working with diverse student populations and exploring strategies for differentiating instruction and assessment in math classrooms. Mrs. Hoste is drawn to Centennial because of its talented & collaborative faculty, innovative & evolving vision for student success, and shifting student demographics. She looks forward to bringing her professional experience to the Centennial team and continuing to learn and grow in her practice as a Cyclone!
Mrs. Hoste grew up in San Diego, CA, the middle child of a Los Angeles bodysurfer and an Iowa farmgirl. She moved to the Bay Area for college at Stanford University, where she studied Math & Computer Science, lived abroad in Santiago, Chile, and worked for the Upward Bound program on campus. Mrs. Hoste then stayed on for a fifth year to earn her MA and teaching credential in the Stanford Teacher Education Program. After teaching high school in Redwood City, CA, she (and her husband Graeme, a mechanical engineer) decided to branch out from Silicon Valley and moved to Boulder in 2011. Mrs. Hoste lives in North Boulder with Graeme and their four chickens, and when she’s not at school, she enjoys gardening, traveling, camping, cross-country skiing, watching track & field meets and Rockies games, and jogging slowly around the neighborhood.
