Michael Hoffman

“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are written in a foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.” 
― Rainer Maria Rilke, from Letters to a Young Poet

About Me:

Hi there! I am so proud to be a part of our fantastic team here at Vista Ridge High School. I was born and raised in Colorado. In my free time, I enjoy writing songs on my guitar, running and hiking the beautiful trail systems in our state...or just getting lost in a good book. 

Contact me at mhoffman@d49.org if you have any questions or concerns. I look forward to meeting with you anytime during planning or by appointment.

Go Wolves!
