Mrs. Mary Christensen

Hello Awesome Hoover Families,

My name is Mary Christensen and I began my teaching career in 2001.  I've been thrilled to have been teaching at Hoover since 2002 in grades Kindergarten through 3rd grade.  Kindergarten is the absolute best!  I love the excitement kindergarteners have and it is my job to make sure they love to be at school and not lose that spark.  Watching my kindergarteners blossom academically, socially, and emotionally throughout the year is so rewarding.  This year will be a year of tremendous growth!  

When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband Chris and our daughter Corinne. We have 2 crazy dogs Clarence and Sugar.  My summers are filled with many outdoor activities including biking and hiking.  I love nature and enjoy raising butterflies each year.  I'm excited to share this experience with my students.

I am an Eastern Michigan University graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Education and a Master's in the Art of Teaching.  I was blessed and honored to have been recognized as Livonia's Elementary Teacher of the Year in 2012-2013.  

Starting each school year is exciting and I eagerly await our little learners.  I believe every child is capable of achievement and feel a positive relationship between home and school is essential to the process.  Together we can build a support system for your child's successes in kindergarten.  Please feel free to email me anytime.

I look forward to an awesome kindergarten year with you and your child.
