Hyde’s most recent position as Avondale High School assistant principal places her in the unique position of having intimate knowledge of the inner workings of the building and an established relationship with the staff. In addition, she has five years of school administration experience and 18 years of teaching in middle school, high school and alternative education settings. Her career in public education began in 1994 with Van Dyke Public Schools where she started in the alternative education program, advanced to secondary instruction and completed her time with the District as an assistant principal. During her tenure with Van Dyke Public Schools, Hyde had the opportunity to interact with every kind of learner as she also served as the District’s Small Learning Community Coordinator and a Summer School Coordinator.  In addition, she was named School Improvement Coordinator for Lincoln High School from 2010 – 2014. Hyde earned her Bachelor of Science in Education from Wayne State University and her Master of Education/Major in Educational Leadership from Saginaw Valley State University.

Hyde said she was “honored” to be named as the Avondale High School Interim Principal, and she “is excited to be working with a dedicated and talented staff, a committed community and a caring, goal-orientated student body.” She added that when she was appointed Avondale High School Assistant Principal last year, she quickly learned that “Avondale is truly a family that rallies to have each student arrive at their highest potential both academically and in character.”

Also new to the high school administration team and to Avondale School District is Avondale High School Assistant Principal Doug Wilson. Wilson comes to Avondale from Kentwood, Michigan in the Grand Rapids area where he most recently served as Principal of Grand River Preparatory High School.  Prior to that, he was a teacher and then an assistant principal. In addition, Wilson held coaching positions from 2004–2013 and was named a Regional Coach of the year two times and also a State Coach of the Year. Wilson has a Master of Arts in Education from Grand Valley State University and a Bachelor of Science in Biology also from Grand Valley State University.

Avondale School District Superintendent Dr. James Schwarz announced the new leadership team via a letter to District families in which he expressed his confidence that the new administrators will “provide exemplary leadership for the high school staff and that as a team, the entire staff will work together to ensure that every child is actively engaged in the learning process and striving toward their educational goals.”
