James Gibson, Principal

  • James GibsonMy 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!
