My name is Mikel Hoopes and I am currently in my fourth year teaching in the district. I have loved the last two years as I have taken on the Strength Training classes at the high school. In high school I fell in love with strength training, and any other way to challenge myself physically to become more fit. Being able to pass this on to my students has been a dream come true. I am a graduate of the University of Wyoming where I earned my Bachelors Degree in Physical Education Teacher Education and my endorsements in Health Education and Driver’s Education. While at the University I had the opportunity to compete on the wrestling team and receive a great base of knowledge in sport training techniques and methods.
While attending the University of Wyoming I had the blessing of meeting my wife. We were married in December of 2005 and expecting our first son in June.
Growing up I spent most of my childhood in Wyoming, where I learned to love the outdoors. Being in Green River is an amazing opportunity. I love the opportunities to fish, hike, hunt, and mountain bike that are so readily available for us here. I hope to stay here for several years and raise my family in our beautiful small town.
