We want your Feedback. We invite you to take our website survey to find out if our new website is meeting your needs.

You asked! We changed!

You’re invited to take our website survey to find out if the new website is meeting your needs.

During the last few months, we’ve been working to revamp our campus websites based on the feedback we received from focus groups, and online user surveys. Your feedback was critical because it helped us understand why people visit our websites and what they are trying to achieve once they get there.

It’s easy to take part in the survey and should take no longer than 5 minutes to complete!

We take your feedback very seriously, and want to provide parents with a valuable resource. If one of your favorite features from the old site is missing: let us know… (Gently – remember the Golden Rule!)

Click on this link to take the survey immediately.

Hello HSI- Austin Families,

It is an extreme honor to return to the Harmony family as your HSI principal. I served as the HSI Assistant Principal of Academics for the 2016-2017 and 2017-2018 school years. It is a privilege to return and work alongside the stellar teachers and staff at HSI to support your students in their outstanding academic and social growth. I am fully committed to partnering with you and your children as we continue to demonstrate greatness.

A little about me, I have 17 years of educational experience as a teacher, interventionist, Curriculum Coach, Community Outreach Coordinator, Assistant Principal of Academics, and Principal in Residence. I have worked in the public, private, and charter school sectors in California and Texas. I have my bachelor’s from California State University Long Beach, K-12 Credential from San Jose State University, and my Masters in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies from the University of Texas at Arlington. I grew up along the west coast and have been married to my best friend, James for four years. We have a very busy 2-year-old, Josh. We enjoy spending time as a family outdoors.

I look forward to meeting and reconnecting with all of our HSI families. Thank you in advance for your ongoing support to our HSI teachers, staff, and students.

Sincerely,
Amy Chankin, M.ED
PreK-5 Principal
