Carissa Hoffman (Learning Lab)


I am thrilled to be joining the Frassati family. Like many teachers, I found school pretty easy. However, my interest and passion is in helping students who are not reaching their full potential. Even in middle school, I was constantly thinking of other ways to explain the teachers’ instruction for my peers to be successful. Trauma, behavior management and emotional awareness are all things I like to continue exploring. My most recent role was in a Level 3 SPED classroom for students with communicative and interpersonal disorders (mostly ASD). However, I have experience in many fields as I fought the urge to teach for many years: Branch Manager at TCF Bank, Executive Team Leader at Target, Self-employed REALTOR, Human Resource Manager for Mattel Corp/American Girl… and here I am! This is my first experience in a parochial school, as a student or staff member. I am so excited to submerge myself deeper into my Faith.
