• Welcome to Hoover Elementary School…the home of the mighty Hornets!


    I am very excited and honored to continue to serve as the Principal at Hoover Elementary for a second year. I am a product of the Santa Ana Unified School District; attended Lowell Elementary, Willard Intermediate, and graduated from Santa Ana High School in 1991. I always wanted to give back to my community and school district that provided me with an education, guidance, and hope. There was no other district that I wanted to work for. This is my 20thyear in the District, and come to Hoover with a wealth of experiences. I was a Kindergarten and First Grade Teacher, Title Resource Teacher, Program Specialist, Literacy Coach, and Assistant Principal. Before arriving to Hoover, I was the Assistant Principal at Willard Intermediate School, Lowell Elementary, Heninger Elementary, and King Elementary Schools. 

     At Hoover, we believe that, Hoover, ALL Students CAN and WILL learn. I truly believe that our students can accomplish anything they set their minds to, as long as we at Hoover provide them with the experiences, tools, motivation, and desire to achieve. By providing a positive school climate, we can implement a high-quality educational program for our students. We believe that all students have great potential, and it is up to us to pull out the greatest potential in every child. We are committed to ensure that all students attain the 21st Century skills needed, in order to be college and career ready. Our students have the potential to become future teachers, authors, doctors, lawyers, police officer, scientist, or even the president of the United States. With this in mind, we cordially invite you to learn about Herbert Hoover Elementary, and you will see that it is a great place to be.

     I look forward to continuing to provide a great experience for our students, parents, and families. I encourage all parents to become in their child's education, and support him/her to the best ability that you can. If there is anything I can support you with, please do not hesitate to contact me by email at Armando.Gutierrez@sausd.us, by phone at (714) 564-2103, or stop by school. 

                                       TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN OUR STUDENTS!
