Hoffman to Serve as Next UCFSD Assistant Superintendent
KENNETT SQUARE, PA – The Unionville-Chadds Ford School Board unanimously approved Mr. Timothy Hoffman as the next Assistant Superintendent of Unionville-Chadds Ford School District. Hoffman is currently the Director of Curriculum and Instruction for the district. He will replace Mr. John Nolen, who is retiring at the end of the school year after serving 18 years with the district.
"I am both honored and humbled to serve the Unionville-Chadds Ford community as the next Assistant Superintendent,” said Hoffman. “I'd like to take the opportunity to thank Dr. Sanville, the School Board, and our staff and students for their continued support. Anything I have ever accomplished professionally has been, in large part, due to the support and collaborative efforts of our entire school community. UCFSD is a great place because of how well we all work together and support each other."
Hoffman joined the District in 2012 as Principal of Charles F. Patton Middle School. In 2017, he made the transition to the district office to take on the role of Director of Curriculum and Instruction, a position he has held for the last four years. Prior to joining UCFSD, Hoffman was an assistant principal in the Tredyffrin-Easttown School District. He also served as an assistant principal for the Montgomery County Public Schools in Maryland, which is where he started his career as a teacher.
Hoffman’s qualifications made him the ideal choice for the position. He has served as a member of the Superintendent’s Central Cabinet for the last four years. He has worked directly with the principals to plan and coordinate the educational program from Kindergarten through Grade 12, working with head teachers, department chairs, and committees. He has planned and implemented several District-wide professional development opportunities. In his current seat, he is the chair of the UCFSD Equity Council and co-chair of the UCFSD Portrait of a Graduate Committee. Additionally, as chair of the UCFSD Secondary Scheduling Committee, he helped create and supervised the implementation of the high school lunch and learn schedule.
This past year, Hoffman was instrumental in creating the District’s health and safety plan in response to COVID-19. His leadership helped shape plans for a hybrid educational model at all grade levels. Subsequently, he played a large role in the transition to in-person learning, working closely with building principals, teachers and parents.
“Tim’s positive influence can be found in just about every District initiative and program,” said Dr. John Sanville, UCFSD Superintendent. “He is highly respected by teachers, staff, parents, and the community. The district has benefited greatly from his hard work and thoughtful leadership, and I am so pleased that he will continue to serve the district as Assistant Superintendent.”
Hoffman is a district resident and parent. He lives in Pocopson Township with his wife and their three children. He has also served as a youth basketball and softball coach in the community.
"I am thrilled to be able to continue my career path in the District that my family and I call home,” said Hoffman. “Every day, I am lucky enough to work with some of the best educational professionals at every level of our organization. From our support staff to our teachers and administrators and School Board, I am grateful to continue to be a part of this organization as both an employee, taxpayer, and parent. I look forward to applying my skill set in this new position to continue to make UCFSD a place where all of our students are empowered to succeed in life and contribute to society.”
