All Staff Cinnamon Hemmeline Executive Director East Communities YMCA Send a Message Languages Spoken English I found my home at the East Communities YMCA in 2013 after serving as the Executive Director/Superintendent at Austin Discovery School. I began my career as a Montessori Teacher while attending the University of Texas. After receiving my education degree, I became a teacher in Del Valle ISD prior to teaching at Austin Discovery School. I received my Masters in Educational Administration and Community Leadership from Texas State in 2007. It was at Austin Discovery School that I found my passion for building community. The YMCA offers such a rich and varied way to build community with people of all ages and stages of life; it was a natural fit for my drive to serve the community. I love the East Austin community and the Y!
