About LeBronte Hoover:

My name is LeBronte Hoover and I’m very excited to be a guest on the ASPIRE to Lead Podcast. My career in education began 12 years ago (2011) in my hometown of Natchitoches, La as a substitute teacher and coach. After completing alternate certification, I moved on to full time teacher and coach at the highschool level. My family and I relocated to Frisco, Tx in 2018 where I continued to teach and coach at the middle school level. I began my journey into Administration in 2020 when I decided to go back to school to pursue a Master’s in Educational Leadership and take some additional roles on my campus to enhance my knowledge of how a school functions. Once I completed the certification requirements to be an Administrator in 2022, I received my first opportunity to serve as Assistant Principal in Richardson ISD at a junior high school. Now I’m currently serving as an Assistant Principal at the high school level in Frisco ISD.
