Amy McCloud Bio
My name is Amy McCloud and I am so excited to be returning to Harpool as a member of the counseling team! I was an inaugural member of the staff when HMS opened in 2007. After three years I decided to pursue an administrator role, so I left and became a middle school assistant principal for four years in Eagle Mountain Saginaw-ISD. During my time as an administrator I learned invaluable knowledge that now allows me to provide guidance, assistance and support with a clearer perspective. I am so thankful for that knowledge, but I now know my heart is in counseling where I am able to serve students, parents and staff most effectively.
I am beginning my 22nd year in education. Wow...it has really flown by!
In that time, I have served many roles, including elementary and middle school teacher, elementary, middle, and high school counselor, administrator and coach. I enjoy working with students of all ages, but I prefer the middle school student, hence my unbridled excitement surrounding my return to HMS!
I am married to a fellow educator, Jerod McCloud. He is the strength and wellness coach at Ryan High School. We are blessed with three (adult) children. Our oldest is Spencer, a recent graduate of UT-Austin, our favorite daughter is Gabby, a student at TWU pursuing education, and our youngest is Trent, a recent graduate of Argyle High School and headed to Texas Tech University in August.
When I am not working, I love watching sporting events, reading, exercising and spending time doing anything with my family!
I am beyond ecstatic to start working with the students, parents,and staff at HMS. It’s going to be the BEST year, with the BEST students/staff, at the BEST middle school in North Texas!!
