On July 2, Ayanna Walker became the new principal of the Workshop School, succeeding founding principal Simon Hauger. Ayanna has been with the school for two years as an Assistant Principal, and we could not be more excited for her to assume leadership of the school! Read the full press release here, and check out the video below (or on YouTube) to get to know our new Principal!
While Simon is transitioning out of the principal role, he’s not going far! Next year he will join fellow co-founder Matthew Riggan at Project Based Learning, Inc., the Workshop School’s nonprofit partner. Simon will focus on supporting Ayanna’s transition to the principalship, while leading some exciting new work in the postsecondary (college and career) space.
