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, 9 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.
