ABOUT OUR SCHOOL
Letter from Our Head of School
Dear Hoosier Families,
It is my pleasure to officially introduce myself to you and our community. I am so thankful for the opportunity afforded to me as the head of school for Hoosier Academy at Indianapolis. I am truly excited to work with the Hoosier board, Stride K12, and Ball State University to ensure that all of our scholars earn a high-quality education. I am a firm believer that placing scholars at the center of all that we do coupled with accountability, high expectations, support, and praise will yield desired outcomes and growth by all stakeholders. I am most excited to hear from all stakeholders: scholars, parents, and community partners. I want to learn of the awesome things that are happening each day in our schools and how we can continue to become even stronger partners in learning.
Hoosier has earned a reputation for personalizing learning for each scholar, and the unlimited opportunities accessible beyond the classroom are exceptional as they provide social and emotional learning experiences for scholars at all levels. As an educator for 16 years, I unstintingly value the programs and services that currently exist, and I am fully committed to building upon this foundation to safeguard that both current and future scholars have opportunities to discover their interests and find their true desires.
In addition to the robust Stride K12 curriculum, it was the strong sense of community that drew me here. I observed this sense of pride as I matriculated through the interview process and have experienced it firsthand over the past month as I have met with each staff member. The parents, scholars, and community partners that I have met have been extremely welcoming. Please understand and trust that it is my full intent to make every effort to cultivate this practice to ensure the continued growth of our students, schools, and community.
While serving as your head of school, I plan to be available to all stakeholders and maintain an open line of communication. I welcome any questions, comments, or concerns that you may have about our schools, and can be reached directly at 317.547.1400 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is an exciting time for Hoosier, and I am truly enthusiastic about the year ahead.
