Principal's Message

Welcome to Hylen Souders Elementary!

Dear Souders Families:

We are excited to continue to inspire and guide as we make progress toward our 2020 vision. 

I am excited to work again at Big Walnut. I taught 6th grade language arts at Big Walnut Middle School for 11 years. My professional journey took me to other districts where I gained valuable administrative experience. That being said, Big Walnut always felt like home, and I cannot express how excited I am to be here.

We want our students to grow academically as well as socially. If you came to observe a classroom today, you would notice the classroom does not look today like it looked a few years ago. Students are being challenged to be problem solvers and critical thinkers. We may not know what job our students will hold in the future, but we do know that professions require the students to solve problems and think critically.

Please contact me with any questions or concerns.

Matt Cox, Principal
