The Hamilton School Board approved the hiring of Brad Hoffmann May 3 as the Templeton Middle School associate principal. Hoffmann will begin his position in the district July 1.
Hoffmann has been the assistant principal and athletic director for the past year at Palmyra Eagle High School. His previous experience was at Scott Highlands Middle School in Apple Valley, Minn., where he was the administrative associate, teacher and athletic director for three years and a physical education and health teacher for four years.
He earned his master’s degree in education from St. Mary’s University in Winona in 2000 and his bachelor’s degree in education from the University of Wisconsin – LaCrosse in 1996.
“We are pleased to hire an individual who has the middle school leadership experience and child advocacy necessary to be a successful school leader in our community,” Hamilton Superintendent Kathleen Cooke said. ““We look forward to the addition of Mr. Hoffmann who is an energetic and innovative educator focused on student achievement. I believe Templeton Middle School will be served well by its new associate principal.”
Hoffmann fills the position that will be vacant with the retirement of long-time Templeton associate principal and former teacher Dale Kuntz.
Templeton Middle School serves 852 sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders, and is located at N59 W22490 Silver Spring Dr., Sussex.
