Ms. Samantha Hoffman

Welcome to our class webpage. I am happy you are here! My name is Ms. Samantha Hoffman. I teach ELA 8 and Advanced Literature and Composition here at Alston Middle School. I matriculated from Clemson University in 2012, where I earned my BA in English and Secondary Education. Later, I went on to study Administration and Leadership at Southern Wesleyan University; here, I earned my MEd. Although there are few things I love more than teaching and sharing knowledge with others, learning is something I enjoy doing just as much. I love Clemson football, and spending time with my Dalmation puppy, Minnie, as well. I also have a passion for travel, food, and culture. 

I will use this webpage throughout the 2019-2020 school year to keep students and parents alike up to date on upcoming major assignments that will be important for students to complete in a timely manner. I will also use this page to post classroom files that can be conveniently referenced by students and parents at any time. I will use the Remind app as a means of communicating class announcements this year. To join my Remind thread, please text @kk48b3 to 81010. As always, email is the most efficient way to get in contact with me other than the Remind app. Please email me at with any questions or concerns you may have as we progress through this school year.

It is going to be a great year! Go Tigers!
