This is an exciting year for Mrs. Hedderick as she assumes the role of Senior Years Principal. She is looking forward to bringing her experiences together from her time in the Foundation and Middle Years to continue to strengthen the connections across the school. As she moves into her new office Mrs. Hedderick remains true to her guiding principles, including supporting the girls as they strive to push themselves beyond their comfort zones and develop their voice on their journey as confident young women.
An SMS alumna herself, Mrs. Hedderick has had the unique opportunity to be involved in both sides of the school. It has definitely given her rare insight into what SMS can do for its students. She has always appreciated the cultural diversity within the school, which prompted her interest in studying Modern Languages. She personally thinks that the SMS staff is extraordinarily dedicated, as everyone genuinely wants to be a part of our school family. She fondly remembers having past teachers as incredible mentors during her first years as a teacher here.
Why SMS? “It’s the strength of everyone pulling together as a team. Also, we are privileged to work with students who have a deep desire for learning, and it's exciting to watch them grow in learning over their years at SMS.”
