TPH Phoenix is elated to announce new hire, Amy Reagan, in the role of Head of Academics for its Center of Excellence (CoE) academy. Reagan joins TPH with over a decade of academic experience, in both public and private school settings, bringing significant knowledge of hybrid learning models and valuable techniques in providing personalized instruction through tutoring. As a parent of a current TPH Phoenix student-athlete, she understands first-hand the unique daily time constraints elite students have as they manage their sport and educational pursuits. In this new role, Reagan will assist in balancing academics with athletics for elite student-athletes who seek the selective learning environment where they can Study, Train, Play to their fullest potential.
“Amy is an excellent hire for us as she understands the needs of our student-athletes and can identify with our parent group,” noted Director and Head of Hockey TPH Phoenix, Brett Blatchford. “With her years of experience in the classroom and her support of students who were learning remotely last year, she brings a unique skill set to the position that will make her invaluable to TPH and our partners at Sequoia and Edmentum.”
As the Head of Academics, Reagan will work on-site as both a coach and mentor to student-athletes, while creating a successful learning environment for everyone. She will mentor in learning labs, teach organizational skills and accountability while providing ongoing support for students and families. She will leverage her strong communication skills as a key liaison between TPH hockey staff, teachers, and parents.
“With my prior experiences in an academy-style setting and as a parent of a student-athlete, I look forward to joining TPH as the Head of Academics. The unique experience that TPH provides student-athletes is second to none, and I am excited to ensure that each student reaches their academic potential while focusing on their character and work ethic,” said Reagan.
From her previous experience, Reagan has familiarity working in the dual environment for athletics and academics and creating essential bonds with all individuals involved. From her previous roles, she understands the value of education, paired with a positive learning environment. This past school year she worked with students ranging from grades first through seventh and helped them maintain focus and complete tasks in a timely manner while providing academic support during the COVID-19 school lockdowns in California. During that time, she customized and applied an individualized set of objectives for each student, conducted individual study sessions, upheld a constructive learning atmosphere, and monitored mental health within the unique educational situation. She communicated directly with parents and provided daily verbal and written status updates to ensure that all students succeeded during the unprecedented period.
She brings with her an immense amount of experience not just in education, but also in guidance and professional development within the academic world. Through much research, she has published papers on kindergarten readiness, home-learning activities, and the latest trends and procedures for learning environments.
