Jennifer Hogan has been named a FINALIST for the 2018 National Assistant Principal of the Year by the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP).

Mrs. Hogan shared this with NASSP about her initiatives at Hoover High School:

Hoover High School has almost 3,000 students. It takes positive relationships to maintain a positive and personalized environment in our large school. One of my mantras is that every student should have at least one "go-to" adult in the school. In one beginning-of-the-year activity I led, I created large posters that contained all of the returning 10th-12th grade students' pictures and names. I hung these in the conference room and teachers identified students with whom they had a positive relationship. Any students who were not identified were placed on a spreadsheet and the sheet was sent to teachers. Teachers were asked to review their rosters for the year and "adopt" a student for the year. We want all students to have a sense of belonging and know that they are cared for, and this activity helped our staff ensure that all students had an advocate.
