Kasey Herd

Kasey Herd

Director of School Culture

I am both humbled and excited to join a team of educators that truly believe in providing exceptional education to the scholars of HFCA. During my time as a classroom teacher, I took pride in being able to cultivate and nourish relationships with not only scholars but with their families as well.  As a member of strong school leadership teams in the past, I have successfully created and implemented several school initiatives and programs that promote community and retention. I truly believe in the mission of HFCA and look forward to the journey ahead of preparing our scholars for their academic journey to and through college. 

Education: University of Wisconsin- Milwaukee  Bachelor of Science- Community Engagement and education; Cardinal Stritch University– Master’s in Education Leadership

I am luckiest Principal in Milwaukee as I have scholars, parents, and staff who are deeply committed to HFCA’s vision of nurturing scholars capable of transforming their world by going to and through college. Although I was born and raised in Chicago and spent 13 years with amazing educators of Chicago’s Public School System, I have come to love and appreciate the generosity of Milwaukee’s educational community.

Education: Bachelor of Arts – Literature; Masters: Elementary Education; Masters – Curriculum & Instruction Technology; Masters: Education Administration; National Board of Professional Teaching Standards

After many years in the classroom, I am thrilled to be a part of the leadership team here at HFCA. We are in the business of closing opportunity gaps and I am responsible for developing the systems, programs, and relationships that will allow our scholars to show that with opportunities and equity, anything is possible.
