It’s a Great Year to be a Porcupine!
My name is Melissa Hutchison and I have the pleasure to serve as Principal of Springtown High School. My husband, Scott, and I have two children of my own, Alexis and Jack. In addition to my own two Porcupines, I am fortunate to serve 1100+ more each and every day.
I began my career as a professional educator after earning a Bachelor’s of Arts Degree in Biology with a minor in Chemistry from University of North Texas. After teaching for several years, I continued my learning at UNT by completing a Master’s of Education in Educational Administration. I am a certified Science teacher and also obtained certification as a Principal.
The same month I graduated from UNT, I readily accepted a position as a science teacher at Gainesville High School. In addition to teaching at Gainesville ISD, I also taught in Frisco ISD and Lindsay ISD. I returned to Gainesville and served as the assistant principal for two years before being given the opportunity to become the high school principal for the next four years.
I truly believe that Springtown ISD was placed in my path for a reason. I am inspired by our teachers' hard work, dedication and love for their students and in awe of the amazing knowledge and talents that our students show each and every day! I am honored to live and work in a community with such strong pride and support. This inspires me to ensure that our Porcupines are provided with the necessary educational and social emotional support needed to be college, career and/or military ready for a world where the opportunities are endless!
The success of the students and staff of Springtown High School is my priority. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions, concerns or celebrations! I am a phone call (817.220.3888) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) away and of course, my door is always open!
Stay Sharp Porcupines,
Melissa Hutchison, Principal
