Dedication, compassion and leadership make Gina Hackett a game changer. Reading and writing are her jam! She is dedicated to developing a love for reading in all students, from struggling readers to the top of the class. She finds literature that allows students a mirror to see themselves and a window to see others. She is cultivating young people who are empowered to engage in challenging discourse. She created a guide for professional learning communities across the district. Gina is described as our rock and our rock star! She has cultivated a team of teachers who are as passionate about serving students. She is a “Birdie for Life,” and we are so lucky to have her in our Skyhawk family!
