Dr. Michele Hoeft


Dr. Michele Hoeft joins the Camp Lejeune community from Fort Liberty, North Carolina, where she has served military-connected students and families as a first-grade teacher at Devers Elementary since August 2019. Prior to her time in the Mid-Atlantic District, Dr. Hoeft was part of the Pacific South, where she started her journey in 2016 at Bob Hope Primary School in Okinawa, Japan. During her time with DoDEA, Hoeft has partnered as a member of the Continuous School Improvement team, led SQF committees, facilitated professional learning sessions, and served as a member of the Pacific South’s Math Task group. 

Hoeft’s educational background includes earning a bachelor’s degree from Wittenberg University, a master’s in teaching from the University of South Carolina, and her doctorate in leadership from the American College of Education. Before joining DoDEA, Dr. Hoeft served as an educator in Arizona, Florida, and South Carolina, where she worked in public education. 

Dr. Hoeft believes that higher performance for students results from effective instructional methods utilized in the classroom and collaboration between all stakeholders. She also believes that supporting students requires a whole-child, multi-faceted team approach and the capacity to build trust with families. 

Dr. Hoeft is the proud wife of a retired United States Marine and mother of three military-connected children. She enjoys traveling and attending her children’s sporting events in her spare time.
