Ms. Haley Dean
It is an honor to be at Hillcrest PDS Elementary School serving as principal for the third year. I’m very excited to continue elevating Hillcrest as a fine arts magnet school. My wish is to lead with the heart of a mother, the mind of an educator, and the spirit of a servant leader. I've served in education for 20+ years as a teacher, instructional coach, and assistant principal. I began my career in Conroe ISD in 2002 and joined Waco ISD in 2009.
I received a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies from Lamar University, a Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Texas at Arlington, and a Principal Certification from Lamar University.
In addition to my role as an educator, I am the mother to three children, Aiden (18), Lillie (17), and Macy (13). They are very active young people who enjoy sports, the outdoors, music, and school.
As we plan for a new school year, our focus will be to ensure that:
- every child, every day feels valued,
- every child, every day is being empowered and challenged by new learnings and experiences, and
- every child, every day knows they have a champion they can count on.
I look forward to working with HPDS students and families to create a positive, learning environment for all. Please feel free to contact me firstname.lastname@example.org
