Come and hear what our newly elected Superintendent of Schools, Rocky Hanna, has planned for Leon County schools. The Public Education Study & Action Group has asked him to comment on various issues, some of which are elected vs. appointed superintendents, charter schools, state and county funding, vocational education, to name just a few. If you have questions of your own for him, you will get your chance to ask them at the January Hot Topic.
Mr. Hanna is well-acquainted with all facets of education in this county, having begun his career as a hall monitor at Leon High. After that humble beginning he attended night school at FSU and earned his teaching certificate. He taught World History, American Government, and Economics, and coached football and weightlifting at Godby High. He taught peer counseling and ran a successful classroom mentoring program for "at risk" students who were in danger of dropping out of school for truancy, discipline problems, poor grades, and substance abuse at Lincoln High.
Mr. Hanna has also served in administration at Leon High as Dean of Students. After earning his Master's Degree in Educational Leadership and Administration from FSU, he was promoted to Assistant Principal and then Principal. For the past four years he has served as a district administrator working with Special Sites and Programs including students in foster care and those under the jurisdiction of the Department of Juvenile Justice.
