Principal Smith

 "The principal is the rudder of the ship, steering, providing direction, leadership, guidance. The principal needs to allow people to be creative and grow." – Baruti K. Kafele

Welcome to the school year at the Nathan Hale Primary. I am excited to be the Principal.

Nathan Hale has grown tremendously over the last year and I am eager to make sure we continue to move forward. This year we will continue to provide a positive safe learning environment that motivates our students to push themselves to their greatest potential. I plan to work with parents, teachers, and community members to ensure that we intellectually challenge our students to become critical thinkers, inspire them to push past their fears, and teach them to support one another so that they can become leaders of their generation. It will be a great year!

Please feel free to contact me. I am open to hearing from you so that we make sure we are doing what’s best for our students.

I am excited to be experiencing another year as part of the Nathan Hale Primary Team!

In this school, we work hard to create an environment where all students can be successful academically and socially.  This year we are focusing more closely on becoming a Trauma Informed school.  As we learn about the impact of various kinds of trauma, we are building strategies to respond to students’ individual needs.  We are dedicated to doing our very best to help students in their journey to eventually become College and Career ready by the time they graduate from High School.

I look forward to another year of building positive relationships with the children and staff at Nathan Hale Primary.

Please feel free to contact me anytime by phone or email.   I look forward to sharing the important milestones in your child's educational career with you.
