To the Community of Hamlin Charter Academy,


It is with great honor that I introduce myself, Laura Singer, as the new principal at Hamilin Charter Academy.  My passion for learning and supporting student success has shaped my 22 years in education as a general education teacher, special education teacher, an intervention teacher, a behavior coordinator, and most recently an Assistant Principal, EIS.  I have sought to foster learning and provide the best instructional program with the most inclusive school culture.


Our students’ success is dependent on the partnership between school to home.  I am looking forward to your participation this year in many exciting events, leadership opportunities, and parent workshops.  I am thrilled to work alongside of our very talented teachers and staff. Our teachers are highly skilled to design a rigorous program based on common core standards.


As the instructional leader, I will promote a positive school culture, to ensure that all students reach their highest potential.  I plan to implement the mission and vision to create a deeply interconnected program that encompasses the whole child and encourages student curiosity, critical thinking, and creativity in all academic areas as well as the arts. This will help pave the way for our students to become lifelong learners.  The students will have a multitude of opportunities to become innovative 21st century thinkers and responsible digital citizens. 


I am looking forward to embarking on this journey with all of you.  As partners, we share the task of joint decision making that will have a positive impact the lives of our students.  I am confident that together, as a team we will foster a positive school experience where all the students will learn and grow.  Please stop by to say hello.  My door is always open…
