Mr. Eric Hockensmith
My name is Eric Hockensmith. This will be my 23rd 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 ninth 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 but spent most of my childhood in Lewisberry, Pennsylvania. My amazing family includes my wife, Kristi, 13 year old daughter, Zoe, 10 year old son, Reid, our dog, Nittany, and our cat, Oliver. Zoe will be a 9th grader at Independence High School and Reid will be a 5th grader at Legacy. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, golfing, vacationing in Hilton Head, and watching any type of sporting event on television.
