Welcome Back to Hazel Park

    Greetings Hazel Park Preparatory Academy Community!

    Welcome to another productive, academic year. Our teachers and staff are excited to be a part of your child’s life and education at Hazel Park Preparatory Academy (HPPA).  As your principal, I am overjoyed to lead and serve such a committed community of learners.

    We have an amazing group of talented, compassionate educators. We place students at the center of our work through academic rigor, high expectations, and ongoing support from you—parents and families. Together, we can support your student’s success in every area of life. HPPA is committed to a collective team effort.

    We have clearly defined goals for this school year. We will continue to strengthen our literacy work with students, including the use of FAST for SUCCESS to guide instruction in PYP classrooms. We will grow our International Baccalaureate (IB) philosophy of quality, rigor, and international education. We will expand implementation of our AVID program to ensure ALL students’ success in high school and beyond.  My leadership goals include developing a shared leadership environment, increasing literacy and math scores, and strengthening our positive school climate. Together, we are moving toward a goal of all students reaching their fullest potential.

    I am honored and excited to be a part of HPPA’s educational environment.  With you, we can fulfill the SPPS Vision Statement, “To inspire students to think critically, pursue their dreams, and change the world.”
