She has served as the Interim Dean of the School since last spring, following the departure of Dr. David Barnes. Hogan has extensive experience as a K-12 trained teacher, college professor and academic administrator. She originally came to Ottawa University in 2003 as an adjunct instructor while she was teaching in the Shawnee Mission Public School system. She worked in several increasingly expanded roles at Ottawa University, including education division chair, before accepting the position of interim dean of the School of Education in 2012. “Throughout her tenure at Ottawa University, Dr. Hogan has consistently provided outstanding leadership in teaching and administrative service, as exemplified in her highly effective management of Ottawa’s nationally accredited and well-recognized Kansas Education program (NCATE accredited),” says University Provost Dr. Terry Haines. In addition to her teaching, Hogan has served as a teacher-trainer in the Shawnee Mission Public School system in the area of Instructional Technology and has presented at national and regional conferences, as well as worked with the State of Kansas to collect and analyze teacher performance data to help improve the faculty evaluation systems for Kansas teachers and Kansas school district leaders. Hogan earned her PhD in Advanced K-12 Instruction from Capella University in Minnesota and earned both a master’s in liberal arts (education focus) and a bachelor’s in elementary education from Baker University.
