Staff & Employment


Superintendent Jon Hoover

I want to personally welcome you to our Glen Lake Laker website.  We are proud to be part of one of the finest public schools in Michigan and we work diligently each and every day to be worthy of such a designation. 

My career as a teacher began in the St. Louis (Michigan) Public Schools.  I then moved on to the Midland Public Schools where I taught for another 10 years and spent time coaching basketball at the junior high and high school levels.  In January of 1991, I began my tenure as the Glen Lake Elementary Principal.  I served in that capacity for just under seven years before moving on to become a Superintendent. Although I spent time as a Superintendent at Alanson and East Jordan, the majority of my years in that leadership role was at Elk Rapids, my home town. 

After retiring from Elk Rapids, I was blessed to work with homeless youth in Traverse City and have gone on to serve as a consultant with multiple school districts assisting in a myriad of areas. 

After taking time to be with my wife of 42 years, Susan, and our three children, their spouses and our now six grandchildren, I had the opportunity to visit with the Board of Education in July of 2019 about the possibility of returning to Glen Lake as their new Superintendent.  Although the original intention was for me to be at GL for one year, the Board graciously extended that to two years.

Glen Lake is a special school staffed by remarkable people who are dedicated to our students in all things.  We have worked to build a culture of excellence where hard work is only matched with kindness and respect. 

We are a family and we are not shy about letting each other know we love and appreciate each other.  I hope there might be a day when you can come onto our campus and experience what our students and staff live and enjoy every day. 

“We are…Glen Lake!”
