Principal - Mrs. Iris Mathis

I want to wish everyone a very warm welcome to Hahira Elementary School for the 2015-2016 school year!  I am very excited to serve Hahira Elementary School as principal.  I served as principal of HES in 2001, 2002, and 2003.  I then worked at the Lowndes County Board of Education Office for eight years before returning to HES in 2012!

All of my teaching career was at Hahira Elementary and I taught grades K, 2, 3, and 4 and I also taught grades 1-5 in Title I.  I have a bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education and Master's degrees in Early Childhood Education and Educational Leadership.  I received an Education specialist's degree in Education Leadership from Valdosta State University.

I am married to Emory Mathis and we live in Hahira.  We have two older children, Allen and Ivey, and two younger daughters, Jewel, 8 years old, and Jada, 9 years old.  Jewel and Jada attend Hahira Elementary School.
