Mr. Robbie Hopewell
I graduated from East Carolina University. Entering my 15th year of teaching in Johnston county schools. Thanksgiving Elementary School is my new home after teaching at River Dell Elementary all my career. I am very excited to get to know all of my TES families. I am afforded the opportunity to teach every child within our school walls. My main goal everyday is to educate our students on the importance of being physically active and having a healthy lifestyle. I am blessed to have several responsibilities within our school, such as facilutating Jump Rope for Heart, Field Days, and Walk to school. Let's go Buffalo!
What are you doing to stay active outside of school?
I am trying to walk or run everyday as well as lift weights. I am also playing games with my family, having dance parties, and doing chores. What are you doing?
