Welcome to Hopkins Elementary School 3rd grade! I am Vickii Drake and this is my 16th year of teaching third grade at Hopkins Elementary. I have also taught first grade, fourth grade, and art.
I have three daughters. Elizabeth is a fourth grade teacher at Hopkins Elementary. Mary Margaret teaches first grade at Brookside Elementary in Nicholasville, KY. Sarah teaches Biology at Somerset Community College. I have three precious grandchildren...Brooks William Hoelscher, Caroline Blair Hoelscher and Palmer Cate Hoelscher. I have a cavapoo, named Charlie!
I look forward to working with your child, and have great expectations for a year of fun and learning. I believe all children are capable of learning, and I want to help them achieve their potential. I believe the success of students is a cooperative effort among parents and teachers.
There are many ways you can help your child to be successful in school. Give them praise for work well done. Be sure to comment and ask about all papers and projects that come home, and most importantly, read with your child. In doing this, you become an active partcipant in your child's education.
You are welcome in our classroom anytime! If you need to contact me...call the school at 678-8707 or email me at
