September 2022 Educator of the Month

Superintendent, Ms. Tammy Chavis, is thrilled to announce that Mrs. Eva Hoffman, special education teacher at Mt. Carmel Elementary has been selected as September’s “Educator of the Month.” 

Mrs. Eva Hoffman is in her eighth year of teaching for the Franklin County Community Schools, and tenth year in education overall. Eva received her Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Special Education from Miami University. She is currently in the process of earning her Master’s Degree in Special Education from Indiana University. 

Mrs. Hoffman was nominated for this honor by a parent. When asked why Mrs. Hoffman should be considered for this recognition, the parent responded, “Mrs. Hoffman has gone above and beyond any other educator to help my child when we moved to Mt. Carmel School. My child disliked school due to ADHD, sensory issues, and becoming overwhelmed around a lot of people. This led to behavioral issues at the previous school. However, because of Mrs. Hoffman, my child is now a totally different person. Mrs. Hoffman really cares about her students and their success.” 

In addition to her teaching responsibilities, Eva is co-captain of the Vik-O-Botics robotics team at Mt. Carmel School. When not at school, Eva enjoys attending college football games, hiking, exploring new places, reading, and learning about new things. Most of all, she loves spending time with her husband and children. 

When asked what she loves most about her job, Mrs. Hoffman responded, “The best part of my job is helping my students develop their own self-worth and helping them realize that they can do anything they set their mind to. I love seeing a student’s eyes light up when they have completed a task that was a struggle for them. I also love that I get to work with some amazing teachers and paraprofessionals who also want our students to succeed in everything they do!” 
The purpose of the “Educator of the Month” program is to recognize outstanding Franklin County educators who demonstrate excellence in the classroom, leadership in the school, dedication to the students, and involvement in the community.
