Those Who Excel Award – Mrs. Rizmani

Posted September 2nd, 2015 by Susan Nottoli
Front View Herbie in Lab CoatHoover Math and Science Academy is proud to announce the following recipient of the 2015 Illinois State Board of Education’s Those Who Excel Awards. 

Dia Rizmani, a third-grade teacher at the Hoover Math and Science Academy in Schaumburg, won an Award of Excellence in the early career educator category.

Mrs. Rizmani originally majored in biological sciences and worked in laboratories. However, she returned to school to get her teaching degree when she realized she was always teaching – through staff training, college tutoring and other avenues. Despite teaching for only four years, Mrs. Rizmani is already a leader at the school and district level, serving on the Hoover School Leadership Team and the District 54 Literacy Task Force. Additionally, Mrs. Rizmani represents District 54 on the Roosevelt University Redesign Committee, which is responsible for redesigning and improving the teacher preparation program at Roosevelt.

She is also making a difference with her students. As the daughter of immigrants, Mrs. Rizmani said she often felt isolated at school. Therefore, in her classroom, she teaches her students to celebrate their differences. By building upon each student’s strengths and cultural backgrounds, the learning environment is highly inclusive and regarded as a safe place for all to learn. This environment led to 100 percent of her students meeting their growth targets on the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) assessment last year.
Congratulations Mrs. Rizmani!

Principal’s Message

Posted August 27th, 2015 by Susan Nottoli
Dear Hoover Families,
 
It has been a good start to the year, and it was nice to see so many of you over the last week. Starting next week, the Hoover Hawk will be emailed weekly. Until then, I have a few announcements from the Hoover PTA.
 
 
·       The special lunch on November 10 will be provided by Fortune House restaurant as Aloha Stir Fry is closed. Please note the menu options will stay the same. Lunch will have fortune cookies but not cinnamon won tons. You will NOT need to submit another order or get a replacement order form. The only change is the restaurant.
 
A special lunch order form will be going home in the Monday folders next week. These forms will have the incorrect restaurant name (Aloha) but will still be accepted.
 
Please note: Wednesday, September 2nd is the last day to submit special lunch orders!!
                                                                                                                                         
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
Thanks,
 
Cindy Kirchner
Special Lunch Chair
 
·       The Hoover PTA needs volunteers to help at Hoover Happening next week. Please email Valerie Gough or return the form to the office.
