I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you. My name is John Denney. I have been married to my wife Stephanie for eighteen years. Together we have two children, Evan (15) and Leah (10), who both attend Hanover-Horton Schools. We have been thrilled with the warm welcome, phenomenal staff and all of the extra things our district is able to offer. My wife, Stephanie, works at Hanover-Horton Elementary School teaching RTI part-time. She pulls out Kindergarten students and works on extra literacy and math skills with them. She loves it! We are so thankful for all of the wonderful families we have met over the past few years and look forward to meeting more of you!
As for my qualifications for this position, I have a Bachelor’s degree in Secondary Education, major in English and minor in Social Science, from Olivet College. I completed a Master’s degree from Eastern Michigan University and a Specialist’s degree from Siena Heights University; both were in Educational Leadership. I taught for six years at Napoleon Middle School, primarily 8th grade English and History. Since then, I have held administrative positions in Hudson, Eaton Rapids, Leslie and here at Hanover-Horton. My career experiences have provided me a solid foundation in preparation of this opportunity.
It is our hope that this position will be one that I am able to fill for many years to come. As we all work together to make our district even better, I look forward to working with you. Please feel free to let me know how we are doing as a district or if you have any questions.
