Assistant Superintendent Dr. Lisa Hoffman.
Quakertown Community School District Assistant Superintendent Dr. Lisa Hoffman is among 20 women leaders chosen to participate in the American Association of School Administrators National Women’s Leadership Consortium.
Established in 2016 by AASA, The School Superintendents Association as part of the Women in School Leadership Initiative, the Consortium is designed to bring together successful women leaders to identify and address barriers females face when aspiring to top leadership positions. The Consortium is unique in that it’s designed to blend school superintendents with corporate and nonprofit leaders.
“I am incredibly honored to have been selected as a member of this incredible group of women educators,” said Dr. Hoffman, the district’s Assistant Superintendent for Teaching and Learning. “Being a part of this consortium provides me with an opportunity to connect with my peers throughout the country, share ideas and best practices, and build my professional practice.”
Daniel A. Domenech, AASA executive director, said the organization “has worked diligently to support women working to climb career ladders and seeking to excel in education administration. A key vehicle driving this change in public education is our National Women’s Leadership Consortium. Congratulations to the outstanding women leaders who comprise this year’s cohort.”
In 2018, Dr. Hoffman won Pennsylvania’s Outstanding Curriculum Development Award for her significant contribution in the area of curriculum development.
Over the past four years, Dr. Hoffman redesigned and re-staffed the Office for Teaching and Learning, developed a six-year curriculum cycle, got teachers from across the district involved in curriculum development and decision-making, and has become an “invaluable” member of Superintendent Dr. Bill Harner’s cabinet.
