KATHY HOFFMAN KICKED OFF CAMPAIGN FOR SUPERINTENDENT ON 5/6/2017
Phoenix, Arizona: On Saturday May 6th, Kathy Hoffman launched her campaign for Superintendent of Public Instruction. In a public event hosted at Pita Jungle in downtown Phoenix last Saturday, Kathy and her supporters came together to celebrate the kick-off of the campaign. The event featured a speech from Kathy about her platform and family-friendly activities.
Ms. Hoffman addressed the crowd on the importance of funding schools and increasing teacher pay to improve Arizona’s education. As Kathy expressed in a recent speech: “Our communities are stronger when we invest in our schools, not private prisons. We can create multiple pathways to graduation and improve career opportunities by expanding technical education courses such as construction, carpentry, and digital arts.”
Kathy Hoffman has dedicated her entire career to teaching and serving Arizona’s children. After graduating college, she taught preschool and then achieved her masters degree in Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences from the University of Arizona. For the past four years, Kathy has worked as a speech therapist in Arizona public schools and currently works in the Peoria Unified School District. In addition to her teaching experience, Ms. Hoffman has served in the community with organizations including the Autism Society and United Cerebral Palsy. Kathy is a community leader who consistently fights for students, teachers and schools.
With her surging campaign bolstered by hundreds of local and statewide volunteers and the support of thousands who have signed petitions to get Kathy’s name on the ballot, this event was a fantastic opportunity to meet Kathy and help shape the future of Arizona’s schools.
