Mother's Day Out Director
I am excited to lead the Mother’s Day Out Program for 2021-2022. I am a retired educator who has always loved children and the joy they bring to families. The MDO program has served hundreds of children since its inception 40 years ago. We have an excellent teaching staff excited to help each child develop socially, emotionally, and academically.
After receiving an Associate Degree from Southwestern Illinois College, I attended SIUE, where I received a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education, a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education, and a Specialist Degree in Education Administration. The majority of my career was spent at High Mount School as a teacher, principal, and superintendent. I retired in 2007 and spent the next twelve years as an adjunct professor at McKendree University. I also served as a trainer and educational consultant through the St. Clair County Regional Office of Education during this same time.
I am married to Dave Hoffmann. I have two sons, Sean and Jeff Jewett, and two bonus children, Matt Hoffmann (Stacey) and Deanna Haas. I also have three granddaughters.
St. Paul Church has been a part of my life since attending Sunday School in the third grade. I currently serve on the personnel team and have previously served on other groups as well as working with the mission team. I am looking forward to working with the children and parents of our Mother’s Day Out Program.
