Mrs. JoAnn Hoeschen

Welcome! Although I am a new resource teacher at Sun Path this year, I am beginning my 18th year in the Shakopee School District. I have been a program teacher and resource teacher at East Middle School since 2004 when it was the Junior High School, then a 6th and 7th grade Middle School, then East Junior High, and finally East Middle School. During the 2020-21 school year, I was able to teach for Shakopee Online Middle School. 

Before teaching in Shakopee, I taught in Houston, Texas; Millilani, Hawaii; and in a few districts in Minnesota. Part of my job as a special education teacher is to follow and implement each student's Individualized Education Program (IEP), and to provide a safe, comfortable, and challenging environment in order for each student to be successful. If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know!
