Mrs. Hoffman (8th Grade),

Thanks so much for everything that you did for our history class. When doing National History Day, so may of us were confused and unsettled and unsure of where to even start, and by the end of the time we spent in class, everyone had a project that they could compete with. For some people, this was their first competition, and you helped them and gave them confidence.
