The Harwood Unified Union School District is excited to announce the hiring of Fayston Elementary’s new Principal, Celia Hooker. The district is delighted to have her join the administrative team as of July 1, 2019. The decision was unanimous by the hiring committee and the HUUSD Board.
Many of our district families already know Ms. Hooker well. She has been a kindergarten teacher at TBPS for the past seven years. Before that, she was a kindergarten teacher at the Hardwick Elementary School for two years. While she is passionate about teaching, she is equally passionate about helping teachers feel confident in their instruction. To reach that goal, she has engaged in classroom behavior practice coach training so that she can better support teachers in their desire to improve their practice. To quote Ms. Hooker, “There is something about this collaborative relationship that energizes me to my core. It...gives me ‘teacher goosebumps.’”
Ms. Hooker’s excitement for learning hasn’t stopped there. In 2016, she completed her Master’s degree in Elementary Education, and by the start of school, she will complete her coursework in the Administrative Pathways program through Southern New Hampshire University. She consistently seeks new challenges within the HUUSD, such as joining the Local Standards Board in 2015 and the District Leadership Team in 2018.
With great enthusiasm, the HUUSD welcomes Ms. Hooker as the new principal of Fayston Elementary. Ms. Hooker is excited for yet another new challenge: “Serving as an administrator in a community as rich and vibrant as Fayston would be an honor.”
