From the Principal

I’m Tiffani Hokey, the proud principal of Hagerstown Elementary School!

As a Hagerstown alumna myself, I couldn’t be more thrilled to lead and support such an exemplary faculty and staff who are committed to providing our students with the best education possible. Hagerstown Elementary is a proud partner of the National Institute for Excellence in Teaching (NIET), which provides us with a framework to support student learning by focusing on developing the instructional practices of our teachers.

This means that our students receive high-quality instruction by teachers (including Math and Reading Interventionists, High Ability, and Special Education staff) who meet weekly to learn, practice, and reflect on instruction and student data. And I’ve had the honor of being selected to serve as a member of the NIET Educator Advisory Board for the State of Indiana.

If you’d like to learn more about Hagerstown Elementary, please don’t hesitate to reach out. I’m always excited to speak with new and current families, as well as those who are considering becoming a part of the HES team!
