Kathy Hoffman

Kathy Hoffman is Arizona’s Superintendent of Public Instruction and is currently running for re-election. Superintendent Hoffman has spent her entire career working in public education, first as a preschool teacher and then as a speech-language pathologist. She began her career in the Vail School District in Southern Arizona before joining the Peoria School District. Her experience as both an educator and advocate for students with disabilities informs her vision for public education. Throughout her career, she has fought tirelessly for equal access to high-quality public education regardless of a student’s race, gender, or zip code. The last year has been one of the most challenging for our schools, but she has led this office by listening to our students, teachers, and administrators to implement data-driven policies and solutions that will protect our students and schools. From partnering with Cox to expand affordable internet services to providing an additional $21 million to fund the School Safety Grant Program, Superintendent Hoffman has shown the successes of having an educator lead.
