New Hoover Elementary teacher, Cheryl McMillan, praised the personal follow-up of Principal Julio Sanchez and his admin, saying that it is some of the best she has seen in her 16 years of experience.
McMillan, who teaches in the SST program, explained the excitement of students who were promised a magician's visit if they had good behavior last week.
"On Monday, Mr. Sanchez made a promise to my students that if he didn't have to be called (for behavior concerns) he would have a magician come to see them and, guess what, that magician showed up today and my students were just so excited. It is this type of hands-on administration that a district needs," said McMillan.
Outside of keeping magic show promises, Sanchez has also recently worked hard to organize a fire training service, arrange an ice cream party, and resourcefully sourced other support for students that were struggling with traditional academic structure.
McMillan shared, "They don't sit on things and they don't shove things under the rug. If you need something, it is dealt with and the follow-through is amazing. The kids know if he (Julio) says something, he is going to do it."
