Hot Springs County High School employs a dedicated staff committed to providing a learning climate where every student feels connected and has a sense of belonging. They strive to create a culture where “kids come first” and positive relationships, high expectations with high support, and fun and laughter are important ingredients for student success.

Our staff will work tirelessly to engage students in learning through deep planning, collaboration, rigor, relationships, relevance, and consistent honing of our ability to provide effective instruction. We believe that holding ourselves accountable in these areas will result in continuous improvement in the classroom, on the playing fields, and on local, state and national achievement tests.

Named Wyoming Elementary/Middle Schools Principal of the Year and National Distinguished Principal in 2016, 2017 and Wyoming Secondary Schools Principal of the Year in 2020, Breez Longwell Daniels is currently the Hot Springs County High School principal. Daniels has also served as Thermopolis Middle School principal. Daniels is a fifth-generation Wyoming native.

Daniels believes in creating a culture of learning for high school students. This “No Opt Out” environment includes a system of support and interventions, as well as accelerations, to maximize high levels of learning for all students in each content area.

Daniels published her first article in the All Things PLC magazine in Fall 2018: Growing a PLC from Rural Roots. Daniels believes the Professional Learning Community model transforms student learning in small schools through vertical collaborative teams for teachers, the triangulation of data and building-wide roundtables for teachers to learn together. Daniels is an advocate for preparing small and rural school students for the academic rigor of college, career-technical and military readiness, and she believes teachers in small schools are the crucial factor in student success.

As principal at Thermopolis Middle School, Daniels and her team celebrated being named a Model PLC in 2017, 2018 and 2019 and a finalist for the distinguished DuFour Award in 2018 and 2019. Daniels was also named a Rebecca Burnette DuFour scholarship recipient at the Women in Educational Leadership conference in 2019.

In 22 years as an educator, Daniels has taught grades K-5, as well as 8th-9th grade reading strategies and social studies in a large junior high. As an adjunct professor, Daniels traveled to over 15 states in ten years, providing onsite classes to hundreds of teachers in rural locations pursuing a Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction degree programs.

Daniels has a bachelor’s degree in elementary education with a middle school endorsement from the University of Wyoming, a master’s degree in curriculum and instruction from Lesley University, and a K-12 Principal Leadership endorsement from the University of Wyoming.
