Mr. Matt Hoffman
Hello! I am a history teacher at Absegami and have been working within the district since 2007. This year I will be teaching World Cultures and US History 2.
Besides history, I am passionate about running. I have run a few marathons (26.2 miles) and I am running the NYC marathon in November 2021. Next year, I am scheduled to run in the Berlin Marathon in 2022 as a charity runner for the Organization for Autism Research. Additionally, I am the assistant coach for Absegami's Boys' spring track team and the advisor for the Class of 2023.
If you need to contact me, the quickest response will be via email. My school email is firstname.lastname@example.org If a telephone conversation is preferred, my extension is 5457. I also have a Google Voice phone number of (609) 837-7022.
This school year is going to be about getting back into a routine and rejoining the school community. We are going to try to make this transition as easy as possible. There are 2 key factors that will make us successful in this new environment: PATIENCE and COMMUNICATION.
*PATIENCE: This is a unique situation to all of us, all of you and all of your teachers. There will likely be some hiccups along the way but please be patient.
*COMMUNICATION: Communication is KEY. If you have questions or concerns - ASK! I'll help you in anyway possible. I can be reached quickly via Google Chat and by email. If we need to move virtual, join the Google Meet, the link is in Google Classroom. I will be logged in to take questions during our designated class period time.
Students - Check your email and Google Classroom DAILY! Please answer in a timely manner. Parents - If you would like to be added to Google Classroom, please send me an email with your name, students name and class.
Additionally, some of you may be going through some stress, confusion and are concerned about school, life, jobs and family. Please remember to take care of yourself. If there is something you need, please reach out.
I look forward to a great year being TOGETHER! Thank you and be safe, responsible and BRAVE!
Please make sure you are joining Google Classroom and checking your school email!
