The new principal, Mrs. Snyder!

Concord High School has a new addition to its staff: Mrs. Snyder. She has joined the team and taken on the title of principal. She is goofy, friendly, and knowledgeable, which is why we are honored to have her as our first staff spotlight of the year.

Mrs. Snyder shares that she attended Bronson Jr./Sr. High School. She explains that she played many sports and participated in many clubs such as Varsity volleyball, Varsity tennis, NHS, and academic. She also shares her favorite memory from her time there. She says, “My favorite memory was when my teacher dressed up in an era. We ate food from that time, listened to music, dressed the part, and immersed ourselves into the cultural experience.”

After high school and college, Mrs. Snyder went into the teaching profession. She taught in a charter school, was an early childhood teacher, a coordinator, a special education supervisor, and a principal at Sturgis. Even though she loves what she does, Mrs. Snyder shares that her proudest accomplishment is her family. She says, “I have three kids; Jalynn, Mccain, and Mason, they are my proudest accomplishments.”

When she is not at school, Mrs. Snyder has a few hobbies she loves. She says, “I like boating and vacationing, and I love going to football games.” She also shares that something on her bucket list is to go to Bora Bora.
