Hello Rhino families! My name is Amber Hokr and I am one of the Developmental Cognitive Disabilities (DCD) teachers here at Justice Page Middle School (JPMS). I have been teaching in Minneapolis Public Schools since 2012. I started my career in the DCD program at Jefferson Community School. Our program then moved to Green Central Community School, and finally to JPMS. I am so excited to be at a true middle school where the students are included into general education classes. Inclusion is our focus!
I graduated from Minnesota State University-Mankato in 2009 with a major in Communication Disorders and attended the University of St. Thomas for my Master's Degree in Special Education.
As a DCD teacher, I am passionate about teaching life skills and independence. Some of my favorite moments include taking students on community trips and teaching them to generalize what we've learned in the classroom, at various community sites.
When not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband, our daughter, my family, doing yard work, reading and playing volleyball.
You can best reach me through email, or call at 612-668-4040. My door is always open!
