Meet Michelle Williams, HACC Executive Director

Michelle Williams took the helm as HACC’s Executive Director on July 2, 2018. Michelle comes to HACC with 16 years of experience in education, most recently as a principal at an elementary school.

She brings a strong commitment to early childhood education and intervention.

“I was looking for a change and a new challenge,” Michelle says of her decision to join HACC. “Early childhood education is a big part of the education system and children’s success in learning.

“Quality early education leads to greater student success, both in school and throughout children’s lives.”

Over her career, Michelle spent eight years teaching elementary school. She also worked as a Parent as Teacher educator and home visitor, serving children birth to three years.

“The earlier you intervene in a child’s life, the better and the more successful that child will be,” she says. “It is especially important to provide support for families who may need assistance, but don’t always know where to get that support.”
