James Gibson, Principal
My journey in education began in 2003 when I graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University with my Bachelor of Science degree. During my first year teaching, I obtained my Master of Education degree from SFA as well. After five years of teaching and coaching basketball, I began my administrative career as an assistant principal at Mount Pleasant High school. I later went on to be the head principal of two different campuses within that district. In 2018, my family relocated to Longview, where I spent a year as a campus principal in Longview ISD before moving to Hallsville ISD. For the last two years, I have served as the principal at Hallsville Junior High school, where I built many positive relationships and fell in love with the students and staff of our community.
I have two beautiful children and have been married to my loving and supportive wife for 15 years. I love spending time with my family watching movies, kayaking, and camping.
I am very excited to be a part of the team here at Hallsville High School! I look forward to helping continue a tradition of excellence and opportunity for our students.
Have a great day, Go Bobcats!
