Elementary Principal's Summer Message

Greetings, Mountain Gap Family!

I hope your summer is off to a great start! My name is Amber Hall, and I am honored to have the opportunity to serve Mountain Gap Elementary School as principal. I am excited to be joining a school and community with such a rich tradition of school pride and love for students. My job as the new principal is to build upon the past success of this great school. I will work to ensure that each student has a safe learning environment and quality learning opportunities each day. I hope to partner with you to guarantee that Mountain Gap is a school where every child can learn and grow. I look forward to working alongside our students, teachers, staff, parents, and community members to continue this important work and take Mountain Gap Elementary to the next level!

I have been an educator for thirteen years. I just completed my third year as a principal in Huntsville City Schools. I led Westlawn Middle School in its final year of operation and spent the last two years at Highlands Elementary School. I was in the Teacher on Special Assignment (TOSA) program, which allowed me to gain valuable assistant principal experience at the elementary and high school levels. My teaching experience included regular and Advanced Placement United States History, World History, and English as a Second Language support classes. I also taught Early World History at the college level as an adjunct instructor. I enjoyed serving our community in all these positions and gained valuable experiences that assist me daily in being a caring and proactive school leader. I have found that regardless of my job assignment, relationships have been the key to success. I cannot wait to get to know each student and family at Mountain Gap and ensure that our school meets their needs. In an effort to meet everyone before we begin our school year, I would like to invite all of you to come out for Popsicles with the Principal on July 18th from 5:30-6:30 pm on the playground. Please stop by with your child(ren) to meet me and enjoy popsicles and playtime.

I look forward to meeting all of you and becoming a part of the Mountain Gap family!

Sincerely,

Principal Amber Hall
