A Message From the Principal
Dear Parents & Students,
It is an honor to be named the new principal at Stanley Hupfeld Academy at Western Village. I have been blessed with 18 years of educational service and wonderful experiences that have prepared me for this opportunity. I am married to Kirk Rayner and we have two boys Anthony and Benjamin. My boys make me realize the importance of what I do each day and how it affects lives forever. My professional preparation includes 13 years of wonderful classroom teaching, in which I was able to touch many lives. My classroom motto was “Nothing is Impossible”. I continually challenge myself and my students to be the best that we can be every day. In 2002 I received National Board Certification as a Middle Childhood Generalist. In 2004, I received the Presidential Award for Excellence in Math and Science Teaching. It is my love for students and learning that led me to obtain my Masters in Educational Administration in 2006. The call to become an administrator was the same call that brought me into teaching… reaching students and helping them to become life-long learners. In 2006, I was named Assistant Principal at Orvis Risner Elementary and continued to learn and grow. I believe life experiences and our quest for knowledge molds us into who we are as adults. My mission is to reach each student and instill that lifelong love of learning.
During this school year I hope that discovery leads to a world of knowledge and your child’s imagination soars to endless possibilities. By focusing on your child’s individual success we will ensure that they gain the maximum benefits during this school year. You can ensure this by becoming involved in your child’s education and creating an “educational team” approach to school, both you and your child will benefit. We hope that you will take advantage of the opportunities that our PTA and school has to offer. I look forward to meeting each new family in the fall.
Thank you for providing continual support to Stanley Hupfeld Academy teachers and staff as we make this a year of learning and growing.
