Principal Jenny Klein

My name is Jenny Klein and I am happy to be assigned as the interim principal at Haw Creek Elementary until the end of this school year. I have 35 years of experience in elementary education. I began my career as a kindergarten teacher and have taught third and fourth grades, before going into school administration. I worked in Asheville City Schools as a teacher and then assistant principal before coming to Buncombe County Schools for the past 15 years as a school principal. Upon retiring from CC Bell Elementary in 2019, I have done several administration interims in Buncombe County Schools. I have the passion for students to be successful learners and found that I could make a bigger difference as a school administrator. This broadened my circle of contacts and relationships with families. I believe that we grow children as learners, meeting them where they are and engaging them to meet their potential. The beauty of children shines through as they spend  their days at school expressing their strengths and academic needs in a safe environment. As a school administrator, it is my pleasure to be part of the school team, school family and school community. I work hard to find solutions to situations. With the highest of expectations, I approach each day to be meaningful and with the intention of student safety and school success. I see happy children at Haw Creek...I am honored to be a part of this school community.

I work hard and play hard! Pickleball anyone?
