About Mrs. Hoffman
My name is Mrs. Sharon Hoffman, and I grew up on a farm about 65 miles southeast of Villa Grove.  My father, Wilbur, was a farmer and licensed income tax practitioner, while my mother, Mary, was a former teacher in the one-room schools of the Martinsville area, and then a teacher at Martinsville Junior-Senior High School.

I was graduated from Martinsville High School in 1982, from Lincoln Trail College in 1984 with an Associate's in Science Degree, from Eastern Illinois University in 1986 with a Bachelor's Degree in Junior High Education, and from the University of Illinois in 1999 with a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. 

This is my thirty-third year teaching in the Villa Grove School District, having taught junior high English for my first eight years, and then junior high social studies for the past twenty-five years.  For the 2018-2019 school year, I teach seventh grade world geography, eighth grade US History, and the "rotation classes" of Constitution and Illinois History.

My family consists of my husband, Lee, the Villa Grove Art Instructor for the past thirty-four years, and our daughter Kilee, who was graduated from Judson University in 2016 with a Bachelor's degree in Visual Communications: Graphic Design, and a minor in business.  While at Judson, Kilee competed on the Judson Eagles Track Team as a thrower and is the women's record holder in javelin.  During her career at Judson, she was a 4-year All-Conference (CCAC) performer and a 4-year NCCAA Indoor and Outdoor Track and Field Qualifier.  Kilee was graduated from Judson University again this past spring with a Master's Degree in Business Administration (MBA).  She is currently employed at PNC Bank in Crystal Lake, Illinois, has a handsome fiancee named Ben, and together, they have a beautiful dog named Storm.

We have two dogs, Dottie and Kit, and they are our "lovely ladies." I collect John Deere and Captain America memorabilia, as well as Breyer Horses, particularly those of historical background.
