Hi, my name is Christa Hopke, and I am excited to start my second year at First Academy teaching middle school math. I have a bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies in Education and History and a Florida certification in Middle Grades (5th-9th) Mathematics. I grew up in Leesburg and attended First Baptist until leaving for college. My husband and I have been married for 28 years and finally moved back home to Leesburg 6 years ago after moving around the country for 20 years for his work. We have 5 children and 2 granddaughters. Our youngest two daughters graduated from FA in 2019 and 2022, and our son is a Junior at FA this year. It is such a blessing to be a part of the FA Family!
