Dr. David Hoffert - Superintendent

Dr. Hoffert is a proud graduate of the Warsaw Community High School and a lifelong resident of the Warsaw Community. He began his teaching career in Warsaw Community Schools as a WCHS history teacher. He served as the principal at Northfield Jr./Sr. High in the MSD of Wabash school district. Dr. Hoffert returned to Warsaw as the Chief Academic Officer and Assistant Superintendent prior to his current appoint as the WCS Superintendent of Schools. Dr. Hoffert received his PhD in Educational Leadership from Indiana State University.

Stepping into the role of Superintendent for WCS is the fulfillment of a personal dream.

I am a Warsaw Community Schools graduate, and it’s because of my experience at WCS that I pursued education as a career. I wanted to be like my role models, Jim Gilmer and Jeff Grose, both teachers in the history department. My goal was to make a positive impact on kids, just like these teachers did for me.

I was hired as a WCS history teacher and track coach right out of college—and I had no intention of doing anything else. One day, during a chance meeting, I was asked if I’d be interested in becoming a principal in Wabash County.

It was really hard to leave Warsaw. But I felt the pull to be involved. I thought I’d be in Wabash the rest of my life. But eventually, I again felt the pull to return home to Warsaw, taking the position as Chief Academic Officer. I saw the WCS mission statement and was reminded why I couldn’t say no to the opportunity to serve in my hometown. I later stepped into the role of WCS Assistant Superintendent.

During my time as a history teacher in Warsaw, my wife and I went through an international adoption. This changed our lives and was a driving force behind the realization of our passions, which pushed us to pursue these career opportunities. Doors have opened for us to utilize our talents for the community. Not many have the opportunity to serve their hometown in this way.

Looking forward, I’m excited to lead a school corporation that continues striving to be vision focused and adaptable. We don’t just define what we do by one curriculum or technology. We look at how we can best meet the needs of our students and community, and make sure we provide for those needs.

One of my goals is to be as visible and accessible as possible. Everything starts with relationships, and communication within those relationships. It can be rather hard to find me in my office, as I’m usually out walking around buildings, attending events, and interacting with parents, students, teachers, and support staff.

School corporations haven’t always done a great job sharing the good stuff about what’s going on inside the schools. So I look for opportunities to share the amazing things—and the stories—of what’s going on in our classrooms everyday

We live in an amazing community. My family and I are thankful and honored to be in this role, and to serve the community. My door is always open and I look forward to strengthening these relationships.

We Believe That:

  • Everyone has value.
  • Every individual has something to contribute.
  • Learning enriches life.
  • Honesty, integrity, and trust are fundamental to thriving relationships.
  • Embracing diversity strengthens community.
  • People have life-changing power.
  • Giving of time, talent, and resources is vital to the well-being of the community.
