Dr. Shana Hawkins

I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Secondary Education with an major in Business Education and a minor in Social Sciences from Idaho State University in 1999. My career in education began by accepting a teaching position at Eagle Academy, fall 1999.  During this time, I completed my Master’s degree in Adult Education with an emphasis in Educational Leadership. I accepted a position as assistant principal at Mountain View High School fall 2003 and held this position for nine years which was both a wonderful and challenging experience working with students and staff.

 In the fall 2012, I accepted a principal position at Prospect Elementary where I thoroughly enjoyed working and learning through the lens of students at this level and began a Doctoral program in Educational Leadership.  Fall 2014, I began my current position as Principal at Renaissance High School and completed my Doctorate Degree from NNU spring 2015 with completing my dissertation study “A Quantitative Study of Idaho High School Seniors’ Postsecondary Decision-Making Influences”. 

 My time at RHS continues to be a joy as I have the opportunity to work with students and staff.  In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends.
