She said the district is running smoothly now and she doesn’t intend to bring sudden major change.

“This is a district to be proud of,” Hoffman said.

She worked at North Union Local Schools for 24 years before accepting the job at Triad. She started as a primary school teacher and was most recently the chief academic officer at the district.

Hoffman plans to get into as many classrooms as possible during her first year to learn more about how the district is educating students, she said.

“In year one we are trying to keep things similar and continue to push it forward,” Hoffman said. “I’m not looking to flip-flop anything. But we are always trying to find out how to take the next step.”
