Principal Nic Pool
  • I am excited to greet you as the principal of Hampshire Middle School and I look forward to working alongside all of you to support the continued success of our students.

    I earned a bachelor’s degree in English and a minor in Secondary Education from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. I then attended Concordia University Chicago where I earned a master’s degree in Educational Leadership. I am currently in my 10th year with District 300 beginning in 2014. I began my career at Dundee-Crown High School where I was an English Teacher for five years. For three, I served as the assistant principal at Carpentersville Middle School prior to my move to Hampshire Middle School at the beginning of the 2022 school year. This year, I have had the good fortune to foster positive relationships with our students, staff, and families that make up the HMS community.

    The top priority of a principal is to maintain the safety of the school. My goal is to help all students reach their full potential by providing opportunities to succeed.

    I am looking forward to working with each of you! Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions.

    Go Whips!
