Mary works tirelessly with our neediest students, instilling in them a true love of reading and literature. She goes above and beyond on a daily basis. She is always positive and kind to each student and staff member with whom she interacts, and she takes on extra responsibilities, jumping in wherever needed. Mary is amazingly dependable and able to work in any capacity, including in the offices, as a classroom aide, or as a personal aide. She brings in supplies from home, comes in early to help with musical rehearsals, and is an expert at managing a busy Book Room! Mary is an important part of the heart of Hoover Middle, moving through every day and every interaction with a smile!
