HSE Schools Names New Executive Director of Elementary Education

August 10, 2022

Hamilton Southeastern Board of School Trustees has named Danielle Fetters Thompson as the new Executive Director of Elementary Education. She takes over the leadership role from Dr. Stephanie Loane, who is retiring after 25 years in public education to join an architectural firm as their Educational Planner.
Fetters Thompson will now oversee curriculum, building administrators, student instructional practices and programming at the district’s 13 elementary and four intermediate schools.
“Danielle Fetters Thompson has more than two decades of administrative experience, and she knows this district and the students we serve, said Superintendent Dr. Yvonne Stokes. “I am confident she will excel in her new role and will help advance student learning and achievement.”
Fetters Thompson has been the principal at Lantern Road Elementary since 2004, an “A” rated school by the Indiana Department of Education. She has also served as a representative for various district-level committees and projects, such as student handbook, redistricting, enrollment and staff bargaining.
"I am deeply honored for the opportunity to serve HSE’s elementary-age students and their
families in a larger capacity,” said Fetters Thompson. “The connections I have made during the past 18 years at Lantern Road has truly shaped my beliefs and values in how students learn best.”
Fetters Thompson is an alumna of HSE Schools and a proud mother of two teenage sons. Her oldest will be starting at DePauw University later this month and the other is a sophomore in high school.
She is currently working on obtaining her Educational Doctorate Degree and Educational Law Certification from Indiana University. 
She will begin her new duties once a replacement is named.
