Meet Our Reach Cyber Charter Assistant Principal

Michael Hinshaw

Michael Hinshaw

Michael Hinshaw is the assistant principal at Reach Cyber Charter School. Aside from his extensive experience with virtual education, he has also worked for some of the largest health systems and medical educators throughout the country. Learn more about Mr. Hinshaw’s story below.

“I am the leader of a group of individuals that give their heart and soul to the future of Pennsylvania's children. Through diligent focus, I encourage, empower, and help students to elevate themselves to the next level in their education, and I have successfully removed barriers and closed gaps in my students’ educational foundations on a daily basis with direct and guided instruction. Our students come from many different educational environments or could be challenged by any number of conditions that make it difficult to attend a school in a traditional bricks-and-mortar setting. I work very hard to engage and motivate students throughout the commonwealth to meet and exceed their educational goals.

I have the privilege of interacting with teachers and families to enhance students’ learning experience and ensure progression. As the assistant principal, I have a responsibility to keep them motivated and engaged, so that they can in turn inspire their students to succeed in our online environment.

Having been a leader in online education over the past six years for grades K–12, I felt it was time to take my unique skill set and partner with Reach Cyber, the leader in cyber education, to reach an even greater audience.”

During his free time, Mr. Hinshaw enjoys spending time at the beach with his family and friends.
