Leading, Learning, and Respecting All
Our mission at Hoover is to introduce our students to the world of learning, the world of ideas, and the world of possibilities. Every student, at every grade level, has the opportunity to be a leader at Hoover. In addition to helping students understand how to manage themselves and collaborate with others, we incorporate the innovative use of technology, meaningful assessments, group interaction, and careful attention to the learning needs and gifts of each child.
Hoover Elementary will serve as the pathway each student will travel to reach his own unique destiny and full potential. Hoover will provide a safe and caring environment, a challenging and meaningful curriculum, and opportunities for leadership and self expression in the classroom and in the world beyond the classroom door. The mission will be accomplished through the joint efforts of students, teachers, parents, and the entire Hoover Community.
Hoover Elementary School will introduce its students to the world of learning, the world of ideas, and the world of possibilities, through the innovative use of technology, meaningful assessments, group interaction, leadership opportunities, and careful attention to the learning needs and gifts of each child.
DEVELOPING THE LEADERS OF TOMORROW
Hoover Elementary has the distinguished recognition as a Leader in Me Lighthouse School, the only such distinction in TPS. Every student at Hoover is a leader - from our pre-kindergarten students to our 6th graders. Leader in Me is an evidence-based, comprehensive school improvement model-developed in partnership with educators- that empowers students with the leadership and life-skills they need to thrive in the 21st century. Leader in Me is based on a theory known as the See-Do-Get cycle. When you change the way you see things, it influences what you do and the results you get. At Hoover, we live and breathe the Leader in Me principles - both personally and in our interactions with others. This approach empowers our teachers with effective practices and tools to:
- foster leadership in every student,
- create a culture of student empowerment,
- and support students to achieve academic, personal, and social success.
