Dear Legend Springs Family,
It is with great honor and excitement that I introduce myself, Amy Hardy, as the new principal at Legend Springs Elementary School. I welcome the opportunity to serve the Legend Springs students and families and look forward to working with the accomplished staff, dedicated parents, and involved community members. Most of all, I look forward to working with our wonderful students.
I have known from a very young age that I wanted to pursue a career in education. I grew up watching my mom teach physical education and the passion she had for her job inspired me to follow suit. This will be my 12th year in formal education in both the Scottsdale and Madison School Districts. I previously taught primary and intermediate grades and was recognized as a teacher in both the Scottsdale and Madison School Districts for my leadership and involvement. During my time as a teacher, I sponsored technology clubs and coached various sports such as volleyball, basketball, and swimming. Most recently, I worked as an administrator at two elementary schools in the Scottsdale School district where I was heavily involved with positive behavior initiatives, as well as leading both schools to high academic growth and achievement.
This year at Legend Springs we aspire to uphold our mission of working as team to encourage personal integrity, intellectual curiosity, and human kindness. We have many exciting plans for the year that you will continue to hear more about.
My husband Duncan and I have been married since 2010 and have two wonderful children. Callum, who is 3 years old, and Hannah, who just turned 1 year in June. The most fulfilling and rewarding responsibility has been becoming a parent. I cherish my time with my family when I’m away from school. We love to travel and be outdoors in the great state of Arizona.
It’s going to be another legendary year!
