Ms. Hope Walker has been an Assistant Principal of Instruction with IDEA since June 2014. Prior to joining our Team and Family, she was a standout teacher, literacy coach, and curriculum guru with Miami-Dade County Public Schools.
Since joining IDEA, Hope has worked tirelessly to improve the outcomes of our academy students in San Antonio, having served at both IDEA South Flores and IDEA Judson. In that time, Hope has become an expert in Direct Instruction; one of the many reasons we are so excited to announce that she will be the founding principal at IDEA Harvey E. Najim Academy.
“I always believe in the power of change,” said Hope. “Making a difference, a direct impact, in the lives of scholars and teachers was always at the forefront of my mind. This is something I continue to work on daily, and I hope that I have that chance to expand my role at IDEA.”
