Dr. Rochelle Hooks

College of Southern Nevada, Director of Education

I have been an educator for over 45 years. From 1978 through 1995 in the State of Missouri I taught Early Childhood Special Education, Remedial reading (1st-12th grade), 12–21-year-old Behavioral disorder/learning disabled students, and Kindergarten.

During those years I was also a Title 1 Coordinator for a small school district overseeing 2 Elementary (1st– 8th grades) a High school, an Early Childhood Center (Preschool – Kdg.), Parent/Community Liaison for one of the largest school districts in St. Louis County, an Assistant Principal, and an award-winning recipient of a National Title 1 Program award, National Reading Teacher award. St. Louis Urban League Teacher of the Year, and Outstanding Teacher of the Year twice in the Wellston School District.

I moved to the state of Nevada in 1996 and became a Kindergarten teacher and a New Teacher Trainer for Clark County School District (1998-2003). Being hired by College of Southern Nevada (Aug. 2003) gave me the opportunity to support, inspire, and guide education majors. From 2006-2015 I became the Lead teacher for EDU 220 Principles of Education Psychology and EDU 210 Nevada School Law. I was also responsible for being the Education Department Assessment coordinator. Throughout my tenure at CSN I have been active in the CSN Women’s Alliance and the African American Heritage Committee. I have also served as the EBSS (Education, Behavioral Science and Social Science) Division representative for the division’s grade appeal committee. I have chaired and been on hiring committees throughout my tenure at CSN. In 2016 I was voted unanimously the Education Department Chair and again in 2019. Being in this position allows me to try my hand at various innovative projects that enhance our education programs and support our students’ academic achievement. In 2021, I received the NSHE Outstanding Faculty of the Year award and in 2023 I received a recognition award for being an Innovative and outstanding faculty member and I’m serving my third term as Department Chair of Education.

Studies have shown that parent engagement in schools can promote positive education and healthy behaviors among children and adolescents. Research shows a strong relationship between parent engagement and positive educational outcomes, including school attendance and higher grades and classroom test scores; hence, the critical need to positive relationship with the families of students. Dr. Hooks will teach strategies that demonstrate how to build trust and relationships with families so that the family is working in congruence with the school and so that optimal student achievement results can occur.
