John S. Malcom Elementary School
Laguna Niguel, CA
Mr. Hoffman is one of those rare teachers that hopefully you are fortunate enough to get once in your life. He changes his students for the better by helping them to believe in themselves and by giving each of them the confidence to take on challenges with a Can-Do attitude. He is constantly meeting the moment and this year in particular he did an incredible job of making learning fun and meaningful through his 100% online teaching platform. He created special theme days where all of his lessons revolved around exciting and engaging topics. He is pictured on one of those days as Baby Yoda. He constantly emphasized perseverance and kindness and his students continued to learn and grow in spite of the challenges that this last year presented to teachers students and parents. With parents struggling at home during the pandemic he was a daily dose of confidence and hope that things would get better. Mr. Hoffman works very hard to deliver a great experience for his students and families. My sincere wish is that every 4th/5th grader will have a teacher like Mr. Hoffman. He changes lives and values the ideas of compassion and respect. I REALLY hope that Mr. Hoffman will be recognized! Please help me make that happen and VOTE.
