Getting to know Mr. Hannah – TCDS Principal

As the new principal of Tucson Country Day School, it is Mr. Adrian Hannah’s privilege to welcome you to the 2017-2018 school year.  Mr. Hannah is very excited to have the opportunity to work alongside this dedicated staff and to partner with you as we continue to create and offer exceptional educational opportunities for your children.  

Mr. Hannah decided early on that he wanted to pursue education as a career choice and received a BA in Education and then a Master of Education in Administration. He has now been in the educational profession for 30+ years and spent his earlier teaching career primarily in upper elementary and middle school grades in both Washington State and Texas. Mr. Hannah then moved on to being an assistant principal at a middle school in Washington State for five years. He relocated to Tucson and served as an assistant principal at Amphitheater High School and, after one year, became the principal of a local K-8 school where he served for the past 16 years.  Mr. Hannah is married, the father of four and the grandfather of seven – all of whom have enriched his life greatly.

Mr. Hannah’s belief is that all of his previous experiences – both professional and personal – will contribute to his role as the principal of Tucson Country Day School. Mr. Hannah looks forward to meeting each of you and to developing long-term relationships as we partner together to make this school the jewel of Tucson.
