Principal Snedden Moves to Middle School

“It’s a bittersweet move for me,” said Principal Deborah Snedden about her recent transfer to Hanover Central Middle School.  After serving as Principal at Jane Ball Elementary School since 2013, Mrs. Snedden will make the move to the Middle School for the 2017/2018 school year.  “My heart and my history have always been with middle school kids, but I love my teachers, staff and students at Jane Ball,” she added.

Jane Ball Principal Deborah Snedden will miss many things at Jane Ball Elementary, not the least of which, is her staff.  School Secretary Lori Micic is a part of the team that Mrs. Snedden credits with her success at the school.
Prior to coming to Hanover, Mrs. Snedden adored working with her middle school students at HAST (Hammond Academy of Science and Technology).  “It was hard to leave them, but I was able to bring a host of memories and experience to Jane Ball,” she said.  There is a second upside to making the move to the Middle School.  “My Jane Ball kids will follow me there and I’ll be able to see the progress that they make as they take that giant step in their academic careers and become young adults.”

Mrs. Snedden is a graduate of Crete-Monee High School with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Purdue Calumet, a Master’s in Educational Administration from Ball State and is currently working on her PHD from Indiana State University.   

Her husband, Mark Snedden is a Hanover graduate and is excited about the recognition his wife has earned as the Principal of her high performing elementary school and her transfer to Hanover Central Middle School.  “I witness first hand all of the work she puts into it….all of the hours at school and here at home.  The constant stream of Amazon packages coming to the door with yet another book about modern educational practices.  She is constantly collaborating with people in the educational field.  This isn’t a nine to five job for her,” said Mr. Snedden.
