Dear Hudson Students, Families, and Community,
I am excited to be joining the Hudson Area Schools community as the new principal of Hudson MS/ HS. I recently completed my transition from Columbus, OH, and I am now focused on being a more connected part of Hudson.
I was raised in Rochester Hills, where I also attended Oakland University for my undergraduate work. It was while I attended my courses there that I worked part time in schools and found that I enjoyed making connections with and helping children. I’ve been fortunate in my career to work with teachers, students, and families at the elementary, middle, and high school levels, so I believe my experiences have prepared me well for being able to support and contribute to the wonderful things already happening in our schools.
My wife and three children will be with me many times for afterschool events, but if we haven’t met yet, I strongly encourage you to come up and introduce yourself. I have already met several people from around the community, and each one has been very friendly and supportive.
I hope that each of you has enjoyed your summer and feels rested as we get ready to start the 2017-18 school year. I truly am looking forward to meeting and learning from all of our students, working alongside the talented and dedicated staff, and continuing to lead our school in a positive direction. GO TIGERS!
Mr. Michael Beard, MS/HS Principal
