Huntington County Community School Corporation has announced BreAnne Dyer as the new principal at Flint Springs Elementary School.

Dyer has been with HCCSC for a total of nine years. She earned a Bachelor of Science from Indiana Wesleyan University and a Master of Arts in Education from Ball State University.

She has taught algebra at Huntington North High School and Riverview Middle School. In her most recent position, Dyer served as the dean of students at Flint Springs.

Speaking to HCCSC school board members during their meeting on Tues-day, May 26, Dyer thanked the administrative team and hiring committee for their support in her new role as principal.

“I am humbled and honored to be named and continue to serve at Flint Springs,” she said. “Derek and I are rooted in this community and we are products of Huntington County Community School Corporation. So, to be able to give back is a blessing, as we’ve made it a priority to stay rooted in the town and to raise our kids here.”

Dyer added she has been able to forge relationships during her time at the school and is looking to continue in the same vein.

“One thing is without a doubt – Flint Springs cares about kids well, and they work hard, and I’m looking forward to building off of those relationships and experience that I had this year to continue to serve students well,” she said.

HCCSC Superintendent Chad Daugherty said the corporation is excited to have Dyer as the new principal of Flint Springs, citing she has served in a number of leadership roles during her career.

“While teaching, she served as a math coach for the district. She was instrumental in helping identify gaps in the curriculum K-12, so our students are well prepared when they transition from elementary, middle school and high school,” Daugherty said in a press release. “She has the characteristics of a strong instructional leader as she is intelligent, organized, innovative and an effective communicator.”

Dyer resides in Huntington with her husband Derek and their two children, Reeves and Wells.
