Mrs. Traci D. Hobbs

This is my 20th year in the classroom. I began my career at DMS and have been back for the past six years! I am proud to be a Greenwave!! 
I am also the Mock Trial Coach, Beta Club Advisor, Girls' Soccer Coach, and the Lead AIG Teacher at DMS.  I love working with our amazing students in many capacities!! Our students ROCK!! :) 
I have been happily married to my best friend for over 25 years.  I have three children:  Lindsay, 24, a Master's of Social Work student, and Wyatt, 20, who is an Infrantry Sergeant  in the US Army (Hooah!), and Breigh, 18, who is a freshman at CCCC, majoring in Pyschology and who will still keep me busy with volleyball as she begins her college career as a Cougar!  I am an avid reader and enjoy time at the beach and gardening. 
I also have three furbabies: Isi, an English Mastiff; Patch, a Saint Bernard; and Olivia, a Dachshund.  I LOVE my pups!! 
I have always loved the written word and the endless possibilities that literature brings to a classroom! I cannot wait to see where our reading takes us this year!! I am excited to begin this years' journey!!
