Welcome parents and students to the 2019-2020 school year!
My name is Rachael Hoffman and along with Ted Koch, I am a proud member of the Medical Lake Middle School Counseling Department. This is my 10th year as an educator and my 2nd year as a School Counselor. Previously, I taught English Language Arts for 8 years before getting my Masters Degree in School Counseling at Eastern Washington University.
Like many of our families in Medical Lake, I moved around quite a bit as a middle and high school student, so I know how challenging new places and routines can be. As an adult, I've also taught in 4 different states and encountered all kinds of students. This year, I'm proud to be serving the students and families in Medical Lake.
The Counseling Department at Medical Lake Middle School will work with your student to build skills and offer supports to make this year the best school year yet. Go Cougars!
