Mrs. Gina Kincaid
I am originally from Burke County and have 17 years in the business profession. I began teaching at South Caldwell in 2008 after working as a teacher assistant in kindergarten for two years and as a tutor/substitute teacher at the K8 level before that. I taught Business and Marketing Education in Caldwell County Schools for 15 years. This is my second year as Career Development Coordinator/Special Populations Coordinator and I am so excited and blessed to work in this position!
I have been married to my husband Greg since 1997 and have two sons, Kameron--SCHS Class of 2016 and Corey--SCHS Class of 2020. I am an active member of Hudson First, where I am a deacon's wife and a member of the best Life Group ever.
I am blessed to be a part of such a wonderful school and community! I look forward to an awesome school year serving Caldwell County Schools stakeholders.
