Welcome to the Hogansville Elementary Greenwave family!
We cannot begin to tell you how excited we are about this school year. We are implementing many changes which will allow students to continue to grow and thrive at Hogansville Elementary! But it all begins with teamwork. Our theme this year is “Teamwork Makes the Dream Work”. We will live that theme each and every day.
But first, let me introduce you to the team leading Hogansville Elementary. I have met many of you but for those of you who I have not met, the past 12 years I have been a district academic coach working on curriculum and instruction with a focus on literacy. Prior to that I spent 22 years in the classroom teaching all grade levels Pre-K through fifth. I have lived in LaGrange, Georgia for almost 30 years with my husband, John. We have four grown daughters and one granddaughter, Emmy.
Dr. Hanna Beall is our new Instructional Specialist. Dr. Beall was born and raised in LaGrange, Georgia. She attended LaGrange College and Georgia Southern University before becoming a fifth grade math teacher and for the past seven years has been an Instructional Specialist at Hollis Hand Elementary School. Dr. Beall is married to Alex Beall and has three wonderful children.
Dr. Ann Crowder continues as our behavior interventionist. Dr. Crowder taught elementary and high school special education classes for seventeen years. She worked as an assistant principal in elementary and middle schools before becoming principal of Hannan Gifted and Talented Magnet School in Muscogee County. Dr. Crowder retired from Muscogee County after 33 years of service in education. Since then she has provided services at different elementary and high schools throughout Muscogee County.
Our core purpose continues to be helping students bring dreams to life through motivation, encouragement, and hard work. We will continue to focus on quality instruction and building positive relationships with our students, parents, and community. Our theme this year “Team Work Makes the Dream Work” reminds us that as a team of teachers, parents, students, and community members we have the ability to help every student be academically successful. It is through academic success that dreams are fulfilled.
We hope you find this calendar/handbook helpful. It is a way to keep all of our families and stakeholders informed with dates of meetings, various school events, and many system and school policies. Please feel free to contact us if you should have any questions. We look forward to a wonderful school year and having YOU as part of our team.
