From Principal Trelane Clark
Hello and welcome to Hooks Elementary School! I am Principal Clark. It brings me great joy to enter my 24th year in education and my first year as principal of the Hooks! When I began teaching at a two-way bilingual school all those years ago, I knew that education was the right path for me. More specifically, I developed a passion for working with students from racially, culturally, linguistically, and socio-economically diverse backgrounds. I have served students in urban public, urban private, suburban public, and suburban private, and religious schools. It is truly an honor that am now able to use my collective experiences to serve the students and families of Chelsea.
Although the school year for 2020-2021 is one unlike any other that we have seen before in education, I have already learned that Hooks is filled with teachers and staff who continue to go above and beyond for our students and families. Together, we will continue to build on the successes that the Hooks has achieved and find new ways to shine. With a focus on educational equity that supports students’ socio-emotional growth and ensures academic success, I am committed to supporting all members of the Hooks School community in doing what needs to be done to set our children on the path forward. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me via email or phone. This work is ours together, and together we will win. I look forward to learning and growing with each of you.
