• Hello and Welcome to our website!

    I began my teaching career as a special education teacher in Northern Virginia teaching primary students.  I then relocated to my home town in Pennsylvania where I taught high school students for one year.  After moving to Arizona, I taught junior high for two years, before teaching high school for five years.  During the 2008-2009 school year, I worked as the Dean of Students at Santan Elementary School.  Since then, I have been the principal at Humphrey, and am in my 9th year!  It is truly a pleasure to be the principal of both Chandler Traditional Academy and Elite Performance Academy!  
     
    I received my B.S. in Education from Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania, and earned a Masters Degree from Northern Arizona University in Educational Leadership with an Administrative Certificate.
     
    When not working, I enjoy spending time with my wife, who is a kindergarten teacher, and our two children, Mason and Mazie, both who attend school at Humphrey!
     
    I believe that to be successful, positive relationships and lines of communication must be built and maintained among students, parents, school staff and other members of the community.
     
    It is truly a pleasure to be the principal of both Chandler Traditional Academy and Elite Performance Academy, and I invite you to contact me so we can begin building relationships!
     
    Sincerely,
     
    Luke Hickey
    Principal
