Letter from Superintendent Soler Regarding Mary Hoffa

Dear Schenectady Family,

I am extremely sad to share that Mary Hoffa, a 20-year science teacher at Schenectady High School passed away Wednesday evening in the hospital after battling an illness.  Many of Mary's science team members were in contact with her during her illness and at her bedside yesterday. Mary was known as a smart and kind woman, adored and loved by all who knew her.    

Below are some images of Mary's warm smile.  She will be greatly missed by her students, colleagues and the Schenectady community. 


Please continue to keep our Schenectady High School campus students and staff in your thoughts and prayers as it has been a tough week impacted by loss. 


Anibal Soler, Jr.

Superintendent of Schools
