Principal - Mrs. Iris Mathis

I want to wish everyone a very warm welcome to Hahira Elementary School for the 2017-2018 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 and Jada.  Jewel and Jada attend Hahira Elementary School.
