School Director

Mr. Hines has been at our school for 6 years, previously serving as Dean and now as School Director in his second year in this position. When asked why he chooses to do this work, he responded, “For every kid who needs the 'extra support,' I educate. I envision a school community truly rooted in family, rituals, trust, and culturally relevant education. At UPAD High, We Can, We Will, We Must!"
