Administration

  •  

    My name is Angie Brady-Andrew, and I am the principal of Silk Hope School. I grew up in Chatham County between Harpers Crossroads and Bennett and I currently reside in the Silk Hope community with my husband and three children. The 2021-2022 school year marks my twenty-eighth year in education. After earning a Bachelor of Arts in Education from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, I began my teaching career at Bennett School. During my seven years at Bennett I taught Social Studies to 6th, 7th, and 8th graders and added Math to my teaching resume during my last three years at Bennett. While teaching I earned a Master of School Administration degree from The University of North Carolina at Greensboro. In 2000, I was given the opportunity to serve our school district as an assistant principal at Siler City Elementary School and became the school's principal four years later. As a lifelong learner, I continued my education, earning an Education Specialist degree from UNC-G in 2011.  I have been a part of the Silk Hope Eagle family since 2014.  It has been an amazing experience to be a part of the SHS team over the past seven years, and I am excited to be a part of all the great things happening at The Hope!

    I love working with children of all ages; from our energetic and enthusiastic five year olds who are attending school for the first time to our middle schoolers who are beginning to take ownership of their learning and responsibility for their futures. It is my pleasure to support each of our students in their growth journey.  In keeping with our school's Mission Statement, I believe that our daily efforts are to INVEST in students and staff by providing a safe, respectful, and inclusive environment; BUILD lifelong learners who are creative and critical thinkers; and CREATE a culture of excellence based on purposeful teaching, relevant learning and resilient leadership. 

    As we begin the new year, I want to remind everyone within our school community that the success of Silk Hope School has been, and always will be, a result of combined and cooperative effort. I consider it an honor and privilege to be the principal at Silk Hope School, and I look forward to getting to know you and your children.  If you ever have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me or schedule an appointment by emailing abrady@chatham.k12.nc.us or calling the school at (919) 742-3911.
