This is her 17th year working in education. She has served as district special education teacher consultant since July 2008. She previously taught special education at Madisonville North Hopkins High School from 1996-2008.
"I’m honored to be chosen for this position," Fogle said. "I’m excited about the new challenges it will bring."
She succeeds Jennifer Luttrell, who was named district director of elementary education and early child-hood.
"I’m certain Ms. Fogle will do an excellent job," said Superintendent James L. Stevens. "There should be a smooth transition because she has been part of the district’s special education team for four years."
Fogle earned a bachelor’s degree in special education: learning and behavior disorders (K-12) and ele-mentary education (K-4) and a master’s degree in school administration, both from Murray State Uni-versity. She has also completed coursework toward a specialist degree in school administration from MSU.
"I look forward to continuing my work with the students, families, teachers, administrators and staff of Hopkins County Schools," she said.
The Special Education Department is moving in the right direction, Fogle said, adding that she wants to continue that.
"No matter my role, previously as a classroom teacher or as a consultant for the district, I’ve always been an advocate for our students," she said. "I feel like I’ve been their voice, and will continue to be a strong advocate in my role as director."
