My Family

    My name is Eric Hockensmith.  This will be my 22nd year teaching for Loudoun County Public Schools.  I have a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from California University of Pennsylvania.  This will be my eighth year teaching 2nd grade at Legacy Elementary.  I am extremely fortunate to be a part of a phenomenal school, staff, and community.  Previously, I have taught 3rd grade at Seldens Landing Elementary for eight years (2003-2011), and 2nd grade for five years at Potowmack Elementary (1998-2003).  I was born in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania and spent most of my childhood in Lewisberry, Pennsylvania.  My amazing family includes my wife, Kristi, 12 year old daughter, Zoe, 8 year old son, Reid, and our dog, Nittany.  Zoe will be a 8th grader at Brambleton Middle School, and Reid will be a 4th grader at Legacy.  I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, golfing, and watching any type of sporting event on television. ( Go Colts, Penn State Football, Pirates, Maryland Basketball, and Caps! )
