I’m honored to serve as the principal of Hoover High School. I live in the Hoover community, and I am a proud graduate of W.A. Berry High School. Twelve of my 27 years in education were spent as a teacher and assistant principal at Hoover High School, and I’m thrilled to be back at the best high school in the state!
Hoover High School is an incredible school with passionate teachers, exceptional students, and supportive stakeholders. I’m committed to ensuring that Hoover High School is a safe, caring, and supportive environment for every student and that we develop students of good character while providing a high-quality education that will prepare students for success in their college, career, and personal lives.
