Ms. Zach Hoffmann
Hello there! My name is Zach Hoffmann and I am ecstatic to teach all of you amazing Jaguars this year! I will be your Social Studies Specialist this year, exploring topics such as geography, history and what it means to be a citizen. I know I have much to learn from all of you wonderful scholars since it is my first year at JAJ. I previously have taught 1st, 2nd, and 4th grades and am greatly looking forward to this new opportunity!
I earned both a Bachelors Degree of Science in Biology and Bachelors Degree of Arts in Political Science from the University of Minnesota- Twin Cities in 2014. I obtained my teaching license in 2018, and am finishing up my Masters of Teaching at Hamline University this fall.
I currently live in Maple Grove with my wife Rachael, our dog Elsa, and two cats, Star and Ahsoka. In my free time, I love to bike, go on walks, play my Nintendo Switch, and follow baseball. Most of my summer has been spent crying at how bad the Twins are doing this year so crossing my fingers that next year will be better! Finally, I love both Star Wars and Star Trek- be on the lookout for my many nerdy shirts.
I am thrilled to be joining the JAJ family this year. I am excited to get into exploring the many areas of social studies in different and exciting ways!
