Chrisoula Hadjisimos

I'm Chrisoula Hadjisimos, and I am an EIP teacher at New Hope! I love working with students and watching them grow through their hard work!

I've earned my undergraduate degree from Lipscomb University, as well as my Master of Education from the University of Georgia. I also have my Curriculum and Instruction Specialist degree from Piedmont University and my Tier 1 Leadership Certificate from the University of North Georgia. I've taught for over 15 years, including every grade level K-5! 

I was born and raised here in Georgia! My parents immigrated from Greece, so naturally I love to cook! My two daughters and I like to spend time outside with our sweet goldendoodle, Charley! 

I'm proud to be a New Hope Nighthawk and can't wait for another great school year!

Degrees and Certifications:

Lainey Newell

My name is Lainey Newell. I have an undergraduate degree from High Point University. My certification includes elementary education, middle grades language arts and social studies, a reading endorsement, and an ESOL endorsement. I grew up in a small town on Long Island, NY called Hauppauge. I met my husband in college, and we have three amazing daughters, two dogs and two cats. We lived on the east coast of Florida for most of my career and recently moved to Forsyth County to be closer to our extended family. I love reading, crocheting, cooking, pickleball and game nights!

I believe teaching is not just a job, but a privilege. I feel so honored and fortunate to be part of this amazing team at New Hope.
