My name is Kristel Hickman and I am excited to introduce myself as the new Principal of Eufaula Elementary School. As a graduate of Eufaula Public Schools, I have first hand knowledge of the Ironhead Tradition of Eufaula, and I am honored to serve as the leader of the Elementary School. I have been dedicated to the field of education for more than 13 years. I have worked with a variety of students’ ranging from 3 year olds to high school. My most recent administrative experience was in Eufaula Public Schools at the Special Services Director for the district. I, along with my husband, have been blessed to have 3 children, all of which attend Eufaula Public School.
Along with the teachers and staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established by Eufaula Elementary. Not only am I excited to work with your children, but I look forward to the work we will do together. An African proverb states “It takes a village to raise a child” and I believe that this is accomplished by strong relationships with parents, students, and community partners. Our focus is to help students reach their potential by focusing on consistent implementation of character education, Oklahoma Academic Standards, and using data to drive instruction to increase all student achievement.
As your Principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors is healthy, happy, safe, and excited, so that they can learn as much as possible. This year is going to be amazing as we continue to provide academic experiences for our students that are rigorous, relevant, and help build relationships while making real world connections.
My door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to call or email me to discuss any concerns you might have throughout the school year. I look forward to working with you as a team to help each student at Eufaula Elementary meet their goals and have a successful year.
