This is the image for the news article titled School Board Honors OAES Assistant Principal as ‘Outstanding Leader’ Ann Hanna, assistant principal at Ocean Avenue Elementary School, recently was recognized by the Portland Board of Public Education and Superintendent Xavier Botana for being named Maine’s Elementary School Assistant Principal of the Year for 2017.

Hanna was honored at the board’s Dec. 20 meeting.

The Maine Principals’ Association (MPA) announced Hanna’ selection as Maine’s NAESP National Outstanding Assistant Principal of the Year on Dec. 1.

Botana said, “The MPA based their award on Ann’s strong educational leadership, through which she shows a strong commitment to excellence and a desire to meet the academic and social needs of the students. The MPA said that ‘her ability to be an outstanding leader, self-reflective and exceed her own goals is demonstrated by the tremendous growth in student learning.’”

Botana continued, “From beginning her teaching career at the now non-existent Marada Adams School on Munjoy Hill as a first-grade teacher in 1990 to Outstanding Assistant Principal of the Year today is no small feat and well-deserved. We are proud and honored to recognize Ann Hanna for receiving this award.”
