My name is Jude Hoffman. The 2020-2021 school year will be my 23rd year of teaching, all at Conner Middle School! I have taught seventeen years in seventh grade, four years sixth grade, and one year in eighth grade. This will be my second placement in sixth grade after two years as the seventh grade Shire math teacher. I recognize there is always more to learn from students and colleagues and I am excited for this upcoming year. I am looking forward to working with the Stallion team, welcoming the incoming sixth grade students and getting to know the them.
I grew up in Kenton County, graduated from Covington Catholic HS, earned my Bachelor of Arts from Thomas More College and my Masters and Rank 1 Certification in Education from Northern Kentucky University. My beautiful wife, Julie, and I are blessed with three wonderful children, Maddux, Ivy, and Nile.
With the new school year, I look forward to helping students set goals and implementing learning strategies to guide students to reach those goals. As with all of us, our passions drive us, I look forward to knowing the interests of my students and work in positive ways to help them grow and develop successfully.
Outside of work, I enjoy playing with my kids and watching them play sports, running to stay in shape and race, and playing chess. I have ran in the Columbus Marathon - 2015, 2018, Monumental Marathon - 2016, ORRRC Marathon - 2017, 2019 Carmel Marathon - 2018, Cincinnati Flying Pig - 2018, 2019, and the Bowling Green Marathon - 2019. Two summers ago, I ran 45 miles through the night for my 45 birthday; it was quite an epic adventure.
