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.
Amy Chankin, M.ED
