Miss Samantha Hoffman

Welcome to our class webpage. I am happy you are here! My name is Miss Samantha Hoffman. I teach ELA 8 and English 1 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. I am proud to be the current Dorchester School District Two Teacher of the Year (2021). 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, Minnie, as well. I also have a passion for travel, food, and culture. 

I will mainly use the Microsoft Teams class page this 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. In addition, I will use Teams to post classroom files that can be conveniently referenced by students and parents at any time. 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!
