Mrs. Simpson - Principal
Welcome to Hoover Elementary!
You’ll be pleased to know that Hoover is among the best elementary schools in Tulsa! Boasting committed teachers as well as involved parents and community partners, Hoover offers students opportunities to grow academically, socially, and emotionally. Providing daily instruction that is both rigorous and relevant, Hoover teachers strive diligently to equip students with the skills and competencies they will need as life-long learners and global citizens of the 21st century.
As principal, my vision for Hoover Elementary School is to continue the traditions of academic excellence, collaborative teamwork, and character development that have been so deeply embedded within Hoover’s culture. To realize this vision, Hoover’s faculty will continue to implement research-based practices within classrooms and challenge learners to acquire fundamental academic skills as well as require that they use those competencies to solve problems and create solutions.
In addition, we have infused our curriculum with the Seven Habits outlined in Dr. Stephen R. Covey’s book, The Leader in Me. These principles provide a strong foundation for learners’ success in school and in life. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with these habits and to encourage your students to use them regularly. To learn more about the Seven Habits check out leaderinme.org.
Finally, I am deeply grateful for your cooperation in supporting Hoover’s academic program by ensuring that your student arrives at school on time, completes assignments, understands the importance of making good choices, and treats others with dignity and respect. I look forward to working with each of you this year.
Deborah Simpson, Principal
