Teachers at HHA are selected by a committee consisting of experienced educators, founding parents, and steering committee representatives. We find teachers who are academically strong, community-minded, progressive in their teaching philosophy, collaborative, and committed to working in a small, diverse, growing school program. The high caliber of our teaching staff is one of our most treasured assets.

Our teachers are very involved in Lucy Calkins’ Reading and Writing Project at Teachers College. Not only are many of our teachers lead teacher on their grade levels, but they also open their classrooms as lab sites to TC staff developers, serve on leadership groups, and lead study groups.
