Jennifer Hughey | Principal
I started my teaching career several years ago. I taught kindergarten, 1st grade, 4th grade, 5th grade reading, and 5th grade math. After teaching for 10 years, I stepped out of the classroom and became an instructional coach. After just one year, I moved to the central office and became the Elementary Coordinator for Teaching and Learning. I then went over to La Mesa as an assistant principal and then over Christmas break I transitioned into the role of interim principal.
I attended Southwestern Oklahoma State University, in Weatherford, Oklahoma. After teaching for several years, I went back and received my masters' degree from Northern Arizona University. I am married to Landon, who is a basketball coach at Lubbock Christian University. We have two daughters, Remie and Ruthie, and are expecting twins any day now! When I’m not at school, I enjoy being outside with my girls and going to sporting events.
I look forward to being the principal of South Elementary and all the exciting things in the near future for our campus!
