Jeff Kirchner

Principal

I am excited to continue my time as the Principal at Hume Lake Charter School this year and loving the opportunity to work alongside the staff at such an amazing school. I have a Master’s in Educational Leadership from Grand Canyon University and an Administrative Services Credential from National University. Prior to my time at HLCS, I spent 16 years teaching a variety of subjects in a variety of school settings. I look forward to an amazing year and many successful years to come!

Office Manager

Hume Lake Charter School has been apart of my family’s life since 2007. We have seen the gift of this school’s intentionality played out year after year. I am so grateful to be involved with HLCS.

Jen Kirchner

Instructional Assistant

I have always been a teacher at heart, and after a 17-year career in corporate training and development, I found my teaching “happy place” in PK-12 education. I received a B.S. in Elementary Education and teaching credential through Grand Canyon University, and I am currently working on my M.S. in Instructional Technology, also through GCU. I have served in various classroom roles since 2017, and I am thrilled to be continuing my journey as an educator with the students and families at HLCS.

Andrea King

Grades 5-6

I attended San Diego State University for my undergraduate degree, followed by the University of Redlands to complete my teaching credential. I have been teaching since 1995, with a break for a few years while my children were small. I have taught all grade levels from second grade through high school, but elementary ages are my favorite!

Brian Butler

High School History

Changing professional gears in my forties, I obtained my B.A. in History for secondary education from Grand Canyon University in 2019 and jumped right into teaching here at Hume Lake. I love history and enjoy the challenge of bridging the gap between students’ present environment and the ideas and events of the past which have shaped our world today. When I’m not at work (and sometimes when I am but don’t tell my boss) I enjoy a good Dodger baseball game and spending time with the family.
