Douma starts new journey at H-M-S
Middle school principal looking forward to meeting students and staff
July 6, 2023
Heidi Douma's passion for teaching might be hereditary.
Hartley-Melvin-Sanborn's new middle school principal comes to the district with not only a solid resume, but also deep family ties to PK-12 education.
"My mom was a teacher and my sisters were all involved in education in some way," she said. "After initially majoring in business, I felt God calling me to the education field and especially early childhood and special education."
Douma's first official day was July 1. She brings to H-M-S a varied background in teaching that runs the gambit from preschool to higher education.
