Assistant Principal

  Hillrise Elementary

Please welcome back assistant principal Angela Armstrong!

I possess over twenty years of educational experience spanning grades K-12 with the majority of my experience in K-5.  I’ve been a teacher, a teacher’s assistant and have worked with special programs such as the bilingual department and title I.  My most recent administrative experience has been shaped by four years of leadership as an Elementary Principal (grades K-4) in Lordsburg, NM and five years of principal, migrant and ELL director (K-12) in Bonners Ferry, Idaho.  I have moved around the country and state a bit but always call Las Cruces my home.  I love to hike, bike, and trek the desert with my two Briards (French herding dogs).  On the weekends, I always enjoy “sharpening the saw” with my friends and family.

I look forward to work in partnership with the staff of Hillrise Elementary, your son/daughter’s school and to work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success.
