Amy Hoen – Principal

Email Address –

I earned my BA in Elementary Education from the University of Wyoming in 2000. In the past, I’ve taught 2nd, 3rd and 4th grades as well as middle school math. All but two years of my teaching career have been in a charter school setting. While working at a k-12 charter school in Westminster, I wrote and published three history units and one science unit for the Colorado Core Knowledge Foundation. In 2008, I earned my MA in Administration and Supervision through the University of Phoenix.

I joined the Aurora Academy family in 2015 as an assistant principal and in 2018 transitioned into my current role as principal.

It's hard to believe I'm going on my 3rd year serving the AACS community as the Assistant Principal.  It's been an amazing journey and I'm as excited as I was on day one to continue the important work.    

I'm currently in my final year as a Doctorate student at CU Denver where I’m studying Executive Leadership and I hope to use the knowledge I've gained to positively impact students and families here at AACS.  Prior to moving to this amazing state that we call home, I lived in Portland, OR where I completed my master's degree in Teaching.  My journey in leadership began in DPS as a GT teacher, I then transitioned into an admin internship role while I completed my Educational Leadership degree from University of Colorado Denver 

During my free time outside of my studies you can find me at the gym playing basketball, or most of the time, helping out my wife at home taking care of our two toddlers.  I feel humbled every day I get to come into the building and I can’t wait to see the heights we can climb together.
