From the Principal


It is with great honor and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the newly appointed Principal of Willard North Elementary School for the 2014-2015 school year.  I possess over eight years educational experience spanning grades Pre-K-6th Grade.  My most recent administrative experience has been shaped by a successful year as an Assistant Principal for Springfield Public Schools at Jeffries Elementary (grades K-5) and Wilson’s Creek Intermediate (grades 5-6). Prior to this, I taught kindergarten at Willard North Elementary for five years and before that I taught one year at Tiger Cubs Preschool. I am elated to bring my skills as an educational leader to Willard North and work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success.

On a personal side, I have lived in this area my whole life and Willard is my home.  My husband Eric and I have a three year old daughter, Alivia, and a one year old boy, Keaton.  I love spending time with them and we enjoy outdoor activities.  

I anticipate a most successful year as my team and I support the academic, social, and emotional growth of your child here at Willard North Elementary School. Along with staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established at Willard North Elementary by building strong relationships with parents, students, staff, and community partners. 

During the course of the year, we will continue to work together to provide the students of Willard North the best possible opportunities in preparing them to be world class citizens ready to master the challenges of the 21st Century with a solid foundation, created here at our school.  Please feel free to stop in or call to make an appointment to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help make this the best year yet!

As a reminder, Meet the Teacher is Tuesday, August 12, 6:00-7:00p.m., and the first day of school is Thursday, August 14.  I look forward to working with you and your child.

In partnership,

Mrs. Hambey
