•  Dear Hickory Flat Family, 


    It is such a joy and honor to serve as the assistant principal of Hickory Flat Elementary School for the 2020-2021 school year. I look forward to working with each of you as we strive to educate our students and encourage a love for learning. Over 15 years, I have served as an elementary and secondary educator. In each of my roles, I have sought to ensure the success of students by providing the best instructional practices and exposure to create lifelong learners. Collaboratively with Dr. Surette, I am committed to ensuring that Hickory Flat is the best school to teach and learn. Also, I look to provide vision and leadership for the instructional program at Hickory Flat. In doing so, my goal is to focus on student engagement, knowledge of content, instructional rigor and relevance, usage of assessment strategies and school climate.

    My motto is “Strive for the Highest!” Again, I am honored to be a member of this team and look forward to serving and supporting all of you.

    If you have any question or concerns please stop by the school, my door is always open.


    Christopher D. Dowell
