Hoffmans background inaccurate
Principal Hoffman St Anthony School
St. Anthonys Principal Mary Lou Hoffman.

The story in Saturday’s 209 Living section on St. Anthony’s Principal Mary Lou Hoffman incorrectly stated her administrative background. St. Anthony’s is not her first job as a Catholic school principal.

Hoffman was principal at St. Luke’s and also at St. Mary’s in Walnut Creek.  Hoffman’s experience with tears referenced in the story was from St. Luke’s her first year as principal. She earned her Masters in Private School Administration from USF in 1987 during her tenure at St. Luke’s. She is beginning her 36th year as a principal.  Prior to her serving as a principal she taught two years at Annunciation School and 16 years with Stockton Unified.
