Welcome to ESL, my name is Mrs. Houp. I look forward to a wonderful school year as the English Language Development Specialist at Thomas Holtzman. I have been teaching for sixteen years and this is my sixth year teaching at Thomas Holtzman. I have a degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in reading from Kutztown University of Pennsylvania. I have also earned a M.S. Ed. in curriculum and instruction from the University of Scranton and I have my ESL certification.
I grew up in the Midstate Area and I am thrilled to work and live here. When not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family which includes my husband, son, and cat.
