Dear HSI-Garland Community,

I am very humbled and honored to introduce myself as the new principal of Harmony School of Innovation-Garland. I am excited to have the opportunity to lead a school with such a rich tradition of excellence in education! I have been dedicated to the field of education for more than 10 years, and have worked with a variety of students ranging in age from kindergarten through high school. My most recent administrative experience was at Harmony Science Academy-Dallas where I served assistant principal and head counselor. I am excited and eager to bring my skills as an educational leader to HSI-Garland and work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child's success.

Along with the teachers and staff at HSI-Garland, I will work hard to continue the school’s legacy of success by building strong relationships with parents, students and community partners. My goal is to create a safe environment for our students and equip them with twenty-first century skills to give them a solid foundation for their collegiate career.

All of us at HSI-Garland are eager and excited to continue to provide academic experiences for our students that are rigorous, relevant, and help them build relationships while making real-world connections. As your principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors—teachers, students and parents—feels welcome and is confident we will meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun and nurturing environment.

Please know my door is always open to you. Feel free to call or email me to discuss any concerns you might have throughout the school year.

Once again, I am so thankful to have the opportunity to bring all that I have experienced and learned with me to HSI-Garland. I look forward to getting to know you and your children, and working with you as a team to help each student at HSI-Garland meet their goals and have a successful school year!

Best regards,
Mr. Ibrahim Soykan
Principal, Harmony School of Innovation-Garland
