    Crystal Thomas-Hoof - ELA Specialist Pk-2

    Ms. Hoof is from Arkansas and has been a resident of Texas for 10 years. She has 4 younger siblings, 3 brothers and 1 sister. She's been married to her childhood friend, Don, for 8 years and has 3 stepsons ages 21, 19, and 16. This is her 13th year in education (10 of those years being here at Sneed); she's taught grades 1-4.

    Fun Facts about Ms. Hoof:

    • She and her mom are often mistaken for sisters and were invited to appear on the Maury Show for a Mother/Daughter Look-A-Like episode.
    • She accidentally shaved her eyebrows when she was 8 years old and they never grew back!
    • Contrary to what others believe, she is extremely shy.
    • She made the move from Arkansas to Houston simply by closing her eyes and selecting the city and state where her finger landed on the map. (She hasn't regretted her decision!)
