Mr. Hokkina Hong
I have learned so much throughout my years in education, and more specifically my years as a Gainesville Leopard. As I enter my fourth year with Gainesville, I can not help but look back and reflect on all the great memories that I have had with stakeholders within the Gainesville community. I have shared moments of abundant joy, which I believe can only come from being around people that you care deeply about and those who care deeply about you.
As an assistant principal, I can promise that I will always work with students, parents, teachers, and administrators to provide the best possible learning environment for all stakeholders to succeed. I believe in prompt, meaningful, and genuine connections and communication.
As we all prepare for the 2020-2021 academic year, I have never been so excited to get the opportunity to return and work with the Gainesville community. Although we are facing a change to how we are accustomed to starting the school year, I can assure that my will and enthusiasm has not waned and it can't because ''I get the opportunity to work with Gainesville Leopards,'' and I do not think there are many other honors that can be greater.''
