Assistant Principal

I am proud and excited to be a member of the administrative team at Spain Park High School. I work primarily in the area of Curriculum and Instruction, which includes academic supervision of our outstanding programs. I am committed to working with teachers and students at SPHS to continue to offer an outstanding education to our students and to help them achieve their academic and career goals.

During my 21 year career in education, I have served as an assistant principal, a school counselor, and a band teacher. I have worked with students of all ages, but most of my experience has been at the high school level. I enjoy working with students to identify obstacles to their academic achievement and helping them overcome and achieve their goals.

The team of professionals at SPHS has created a positive learning environment for everyone. We are all focused on helping students achieve. Conversations among faculty and students are encouraging and focused on learning. Each person is proud to be associated with this school. Working at SPHS in the administrative position I currently hold is the highlight of my career.

I have a Bachelor’s degree from Troy State University, a Master’s in School Counseling from the University of West Alabama, and a Master’s Certificate and Educational Specialist Degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Montevallo.

I am happily married to John Hadder, and we are blessed with our daughter Hope.
