Ms. Deanna Hunt
Principal Deanna Hunt is a lifelong Michigan native. Her career began at Fitzgerald Elementary (now Mary McLeod Bethune Elementary) on Detroit’s west side. Principal Hunt joined Cooke Elementary STEM Academy in 2019, following one year in Indianapolis, Indiana opening a charter school where she worked as the assistant principal. In that role, she worked to create a successful school that challenged students, supported educators, and valued the families. From DPS to a Detroit charter school then Indianapolis, and, finally, coming home, Principal Hunt knows the ins and outs of education and the best research-based practices to support it.
Principal Hunt, currently, holds a bachelor’s degree in elementary education and a Master of Arts in school principalship. She is a certified elementary education, as well as middle school science and math. In addition to being “highly qualified,” Principal Hunt is a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. and is the former president of the Metropolitan Detroit Alliance of Black School Educators.
Principal Hunt is honored to be back in Detroit and excited to make this a wonderfully exciting and productive year for her staff, students, and families.
