McDonald Elementary | Physical Education
Hi! My name is Adam Hoatson. I grew up on my family’s ranch north of Hershey. I went to a one room schoolhouse for elementary and junior high school called Birdwood. After that, I attended and graduated high school from Sutherland Public School. From there I went on to earn my Associates of Arts degree from Mid Plains Community College and my Bachelors in Education and Physical Education from Chadron State College.
My mother teaches elementary at Sutherland Public School, and my father works the family ranch with my brother and my uncle.
I am the Physical education teacher at Buffalo Elementary and am in my fourth year teaching here. My goal at Buffalo is to create a safe, fun learning environment for our students. We learn many different skills over the course of the year and do a lot of exciting activities to give students opportunities to find activities they are interested in and can take with them throughout their lives. We also work on social skills such as teamwork and getting along with others so they can become productive members of society.
