Mrs. Maria Wolfe
My name is Maria Wolfe and I can't express the excitement that I am feeling to be starting the 2020-2021 school year at Hillcrest Elementary!
After eleven years in the active military, my husband and I decided to settle down in Enterprise, AL to raise our family. We have two handsome boys, Rudy and Jackson. They sure do keep us busy! Jackson is 11 years old and is thrilled to be starting sixth grade at Hillcrest Elementary! I can't believe this will be his last year with me at HES. Jackson enjoys reading, playing soccer, fishing with his dad, playing Minecraft, & making new friends. Rudy is 9 years old and never stops moving or talking! He will be starting fourth grade this year! Rudy loves anything related to football (NFL), socializing and making people laugh! I am beyond blessed to have both of my boys at HILLCREST for one more year!!
My husband and I are originally from the small town of Hermiston, Oregon. Hermiston is known for producing the BEST tasting watermelon in the state! We are high school sweethearts and were married July 15, 2000. We have been married for 20 years.
My 15 year teaching career has carried me across the United States, from Oregon to New York. I have had the privilege of working in various states including: Oregon, Alabama, New York and Missouri. I was very fortunate to teach first grade in all
of these states, with the exception of Missouri(I was Waynesville, MO school district's only ELL instructor). I am delighted to be back in "Alabama the Beautiful," and back to teaching first grade!
