Hanover High School is an active learning community that provides broad academic and co-curricular programs. We engage students' minds, hearts and voices so that they become educated, caring and responsible adults.
All students are given the opportunity to use their
- minds to pursue excellence, academic challenge and personal success.
- hearts to respect and care for the emotional and physical well-being of themselves and others, and for the environment.
- voices to contribute to the democratic process and the common good.
In the three short years that I’ve worked at HHS, I've come to think of Ian Smith (our Dean of Students) as a trusted colleague, a talented educator and a friend. It looks like Ian will be heading to Lebanon to assume the role of principal, though we won't know for sure until mid-May. We will be posting an 'anticipated' opening as soon as possible in order to find the best possible candidate for our school. I'm sure many in our community will find a moment this spring to let Ian know all the ways he's contributed to our collective experience of being part of Hanover High - a truly remarkable school.
I am writing today to solicit nominations for people to serve on a hiring committee. My initial idea for the composition of the committee is as follows.
2 students (1 male, 1 female from sophomore or junior classes)
5 staff (cross section of duties, departments, etc)
Please send me a message if you are willing to serve on the committee. I will be soliciting thoughts about the Dean of Students job description and hiring process later this month.
We will miss you Ian!
