WELCOME MESSAGE TO PARENTS
On the behalf of the teachers and staff of Crosswinds H S and HOPE Academy I would like to welcome you to our school.
Hello, my name is Dr. Suzy Meyer. I am the Principal for Crosswinds High School and HOPE Academy.

I studied abroad at The Technical University of Munich. My certifications include, Science 1 - 8, Principal Certification, and Superintendent Certification.

TESPA Middle Level Distinguished Principal, 2011
UT Distinguished Alumni, 2004
My Educational Philosophy is:
I have a holistic view of education for both the students and teachers I serve. I feel that education is a social process in which building relational capacity, teamwork, and communication are important skills for students to acquire. My goal as an educator is to develop at-risk teens into young adults whom are capable of creating new things, not just repeating what they memorized for an assessment.
As a principal, I strive to first be a servant of those I lead - to be a teacher, coach, knowledge source, problem solver and standard setter, more so than a manager or director. I want to ensure that my teachers' highest priority needs are being served, and that they are growing professionally.
