What’s Happening

TOY GoinsIt gives me great pride and pleasure to announce Mr. Ron Goins as our 2020-2021 Teacher of the Year. This is a special recognition as it is voted on by fellow teachers. This year marks Mr. Goins’ 19th year at Hopewell and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have him. Not only does he lead the 6th grade World Cultures team, but he is also our Second Step coordinator, formatting our weekly lesson in an easy to use PowerPoint for all the teachers to share with their students. Mr. Goins is the epitome of what a teacher leader should be for their colleagues. He always has a watchful eye over our students, staff, and campus and has earned the respect of everyone interacts with. He takes time to teach our students about respect and kindness and often has discussions with students about the consequences of their actions on others and the importance of supporting each other. Please join me in congratulating Mr. Goins for a job well done!
