Mrs. Hoffman

FLDOE Professional Certificate: Pre-3, K-6, ESOL


I am a dedicated elementary teacher, with a passion for education and an unwavering commitment to optimize student, school and community success. I express my enthusiasm for teaching with meaningful experiences, careful preparation, ingenuity, and high hopes. My teaching encompasses technology, concrete examples, abstract ideas offering hands on opportunities that lead to focused student engagement. I have built relationships with families, students and colleagues that last beyond the school year. My experiences developed throughout my career have contributed to the development of lifelong learners eager to achieve their dreams. I look forward to a brighter future, in hopes of giving back to those who set an example along the way. 

I am a mother of 2 wonderful children. Aubree is my oldest who enjoys being creative through various arts. Gavin is my youngest and he enjoys interacting with others, learning and teaching. They share my love for the outdoors exploring the world and traveling to new places. When I’m not spending time with my children I enjoy kayaking, taking pictures, cooking, gardening and learning new things. I love Dalmatians, Disney, and snorkeling. One of my favorite colors is coral pink, I love the smell of citrus and I’ve owned many different types of pets. Opportunities for adventure and new journeys are ahead if we choose to imagine with our hearts and lead with our minds.
