Principal's Message

Greetings Highlander Families,
I am humbled and honored to have this opportunity to introduce myself as the new Principal of Hazen High School starting next school year, and to reconnect with the wonderful community of dedicated staff and families that make Hazen High School so special. As some of you may already know, I previously worked at Hazen (2006-2009) and have cherished memories from those years. I am excited to return and continue building on the legacy and traditions that have made Hazen such a special place for so many in our community.

Over the years, I have had the fortune of working at both middle schools that feed into Hazen, and through these experiences I have gained a deeper understanding of the unique journey our students undertake from elementary to middle and then middle to high school. It is my belief that a strong partnership between the school and families is essential in supporting our students' growth and success throughout their educational journey.

As I enter the role of Principal, I am filled with excitement at the prospect of continuing to support the students and families I have worked with in the past, as well as getting to know new families and students. I am committed to fostering an inclusive, supportive, and nurturing environment where every student can thrive and reach their full potential as part of a strong and vibrant Hazen High School community.
