Ms. Whitney Hooks, M.Ed.
Greetings Yeatman Family,
It is truly an honor to serve as Dean at Yeatman-Liddell Middle School for the 2020-2021 school year!
I began my career in Education teaching middle school Language Arts at Columbia Middle School in Aurora, CO. I taught for eight years and within that time I served on the Instructional Leadership Team, the Equity Team, worked for the Division of Equity and Engagement for Aurora Public Schools, and I also coached middle and high school track.
I moved to Denver Public Schools and served as a Dean at East High School and then as an Assistant Principal at PREP Academy, also in Denver, CO. In both positions I worked closely with the Discipline Team, supported teachers by observation and evaluation, and served as a liaison between the school and its families to better support student achievement.
I am a graduate of the University of Denver’s Ritchie Principal Licensure Program; I earned my Master’s Degree in Secondary Language Arts from University of Phoenix in Lone Tree, CO Campus, and my Bachelor’s Degree in Communications is from Colorado State University.
In my free time, I love to landscape, do-it-yourself projects, spending time with my family, and spoiling my little Dachshund, Sochi.
I hope everyone is staying safe and well and I look forward to supporting your student and their success at Yeatman!
Whitney Hooks, M.Ed
