Welcome to my classroom website! My name is Joel A. Hootman. I have taught at Arcanum-Butler Local Schools for 27 years, mostly in the elementary school setting. Last year, I was given the opportunity to try something new, moving to the 7th and 8th Grade language arts position at the Arcanum-Butler Middle School. I look forward to continuing to help the great students of the Arcanum community to grow an learn.
It is a goal of mine to keep this site updated with useful information about my classroom. You can also connect by "liking" my classroom facebook page, Mr. Hootman's Classroom. Please stop back often to see what we are up to! I hope you find my website useful.
I believe strongly, even at the Middle School level, that parents are extremely important to the learning process. I welcome parent questions, feedback, and communication. Please feel free to email me with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also contact me by phone, 937-692-5174, extension 1169.
