John Hoover, associate research professor
What are you excited about in retirement?
Hoover: “I am most excited to have more flexibility in how I spend my time. This flexibility allows me to spend more quality time with my grandchildren, visit popular hiking places during less crowded times of the year and in general be able to do things on the spur of the moment, such as going to a baseball game, traveling to see family or visiting a national park.”
What are you grateful for from your time at the School of Education?
Hoover: “I am most appreciative of the support that I received for over 20 years affording me opportunities to deliver and research quality graduate-level educator preparation and teacher endorsements at the intersection of exceptionality and diversity in K–12 rural community schools throughout Colorado.”
