Principal's Corner


My name is Stacey Hull-Walsh, and I am excited to be joining Yokosuka Middle School as the Principal. Before my move to Japan, I taught Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) and Math at Lakentheath Middle School on RAF Feltwell, UK. Most of my time in education, however, has been teaching AVID and Science. As an AVID teacher, I was selected to become a Staff Developer for the AVID Center. During this time, I provided professional development for aspiring AVID teachers throughout the United States.

We call Rockledge, Florida "home," and I started my teaching career there before joining DoDDS in 2009. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from the University of Central Florida and a Master's Degree in Educational Leadership from Nova Southeastern University.

My educational vision includes an environment where students are supported intellectually, emotionally, and socially, while being motivated to be college or career reading upon graduation. I believe that students should be challenged through a rigorous, yet relevant, curriculum.

Family is very important to me! My children, Brianna and Braxton, keep my husband, George, and me quite busy. We are sad to leave such a wonderful country, supportive colleagues, and great friends, we are also looking forward to calling the Japan District home.
