My name is Caryn Bacon and I am very proud to be the Assistant Principal of Higley Traditional Academy. I am an Arizona native and live in the Gilbert community. I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, traveling and volunteering.
In 1994, I completed my undergraduate work at Arizona State University and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis on Early Childhood Education and Development. I later returned to Arizona State University to complete my Master’s Degree in Instructional Leadership and Supervision. I come to you with 19 years of experience teaching in the elementary grades and working as an Assistant Principal, Assessment and Data Coordinator, Academic Specialist and Coach.
At Higley Traditional Academy it is our goal to facilitate a safe and engaging learning environment for students, a warm and welcoming environment for parents, and removing all obstacles so teachers can teach and students can learn. I enjoy helping students identify their strengths and never lose sight of their individuality. Every child should be treated with kindness and respect. I feel very fortunate to be a member of the Higley Unified School District where we are Student Focused, Forward Thinkers, and always Value People. Please come Connect with us, Engage with us in learning, and help us Inspire our students to do great things! Please let me know if I can assist you and your family in any way.
