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.
