    Dear Compass Parents,


    My name is Mrs. Erica Hoard, and I am so excited to introduce myself as the new principal of Compass Elementary. I have over 20 years of experience in education. Twelve of those years have been spent working in the Hickman Mills School District. I have worked as a teacher and supplemental/instructional coach. I have also been the summer school principal for Warford and Millennium.


    I am looking forward to the 19-20 school year with great excitement as I begin my role as your new principal. It will be my goal to learn about the history, culture, and programs at Compass Elementary School. It will also give me opportunities to begin developing personal and professional relationships with many of you. I know there is much for me to learn, and this time of changing leadership provides a natural opportunity to pause and reflect on the strengths, challenges and goals of our learning community.


    My number one goal is to ensure that all children are learning and growing academically. I will work to make sure that the learning environment is inviting, safe, and conducive for learning. It is also my belief that education is a team effort. I believe that if we partner together, we can provide the best education possible for Compass scholars.


    Please know I will work tirelessly to ensure all children have the best possible experiences while at Compass Elementary. Once again, I am so thankful to have the opportunity to bring all that I have experienced and learned with me to this wonderful community. I look forward to getting to know you and all of our children.


    Educationally yours,

    Erica Hoard

    Compass Elementary Principal
