North Hardin High School Principal Tanya Corder is the new Hardin County Schools Director of High School Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment.
In her new position, Mrs. Corder will be responsible for working with administrators and teachers at the district’s high schools to create and implement best-practice instructional strategies and a rigorous curriculum. In addition, she will serve as the District Assessment Coordinator and will work closely with the Building Assessment Coordinator at each school.
HCS currently has a Director of Secondary Curriculum & Instruction and a Director of Assessment & Program Effectiveness.
“A couple of Instructional Services team members are retiring,” HCS Chief Academic Officer Greg Sutton said. “We have shifted some responsibilities to match the needs of our district. This move helps us continue to effectively assist and support our schools.”
“I am thankful for this opportunity,” Mrs. Corder said. “As much I will miss the students, staff and families at North Hardin, I am eager to use my skill set and work with all of our high schools by supporting teachers, guidance counselors and administrators.”
She was named NHHS principal in June 2017 after serving as a North Hardin assistant principal for three years.
Her career started as a high school English and Drama teacher at Campbellsville High School. She moved back home to work as a 7th grade Language Arts teacher at East Hardin Middle School. She then served several HCS schools as an Academic Resource Teacher. That led to her position as a guidance counselor at John Hardin High School. A desire to work at her alma mater landed her in a similar position at NHHS.
“Mrs. Corder’s knowledge of her school and this district is exceptionally vast,” Mr. Sutton added. “She has spent time in significant roles and is dedicated to student achievement and student growth. She has a passion for this district, its students and its staff. She is a trusted mentor, colleague and leader to many who share her passion. She will do an outstanding job.”
“Mrs. Corder has played an enormous role in North Hardin’s growth and success,” HCS Superintendent Teresa Morgan said. “She will bring that growth mindset to her new position.”
She and the new Director of Middle School Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment will take over for the retiring Linda Reed, HCS Director of Assessment and Program Effectiveness and Jon Thomas, HCS Director of Secondary Curriculum and Instruction.
Mrs. Morgan will meet with the North Hardin High School Site-Based Decision Making Council soon to begin the work of finding a new principal.
