Roxann Breyer has been unanimously selected to be Hill School’s fifth head of school
Hill School, a Fort Worth college preparatory, full-service school for students who learn differently, has named Roxann Breyer, former Hill School principal and classroom teacher, as its new head of school, effective July 1, 2017. Mrs. Breyer will be Hill School’s fifth head of school since its founding in 1973, succeeding Audrey Boda-Davis, who will be retiring at the end of the 2016-2017 school year.
After an extensive, nationwide search, Mrs. Breyer was one of three candidates selected for final interviews with multiple stakeholder groups, including students, parents, alumni, faculty and administrators. Her established foundation at Hill School and her unique understanding of the school and its students led to a unanimous selection as the new head of school.
“All three candidates were outstanding, but this process validated for us what an asset Hill School has in Roxann,” said John Wright, Hill School board chair. “Her combination of inspiring capabilities, strong leadership, and the smooth transition she can bring make Roxann Breyer the clear choice for Hill School students and families.”
Mrs. Breyer joined the Hill School team in 2006 after teaching at Fort Worth Academy for five years, and has been both a classroom teacher and principal at Hill School. She earned bachelor’s degrees in mathematics and business from the University of Mary Hardin Baylor, a master’s in environmental science from Texas Christian University, and brings more than 21 years of educational experience to her new role.
