Mrs. Lesia Hughey

I am proud to be a member of the staff of South Caldwell High School.    I am married and have 2 children and also 2 grandchildren.  My boarder collie, named Callie, is the newest addition to our family.  I started my career in the school system as a substitute and then was hired as the computer lab teacher at Icard Elementary.  After 4 years, I transferred to Valdese Elementary and worked as a computer lab teacher for 5 years.  During this time, I went back to college and got my teaching degree from ASU.  I began teaching the following year at Maiden Elementary and then at New Dimensions Charter.   I decided to switch up and try my skills at the middle school level.  So, I started teaching Math and Science in Hickory City Schools at Grandview Middle School.  During this time, I returned to college and got my certification to teach in the Special Education Department for grades K-12.  I was hired as an EC Teacher for the 2016-2017 school year at SCHS and I am happy to say that I am beginning my fourth year as a Spartan.  I teach math and science and love working with the students and helping them grow and discover new things.  I look forward to many years in the Caldwell County School System.
