Mrs. Jill Whitehead
I joined Little Elm ISD in 2015 at Chavez Elementary School. During that time, I served on the ALI Aspiring Leadership Team, as Second Grade Team Leader along with a variety of committees/teams.
I received my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education while specializing in Early Childhood from Texas A & M University-Commerce. I earned a master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I also received my Principal Certification and Instructional Leadership Development Certification from Texas A & M University - Commerce.
My career began in Quinlan ISD where I taught first, second, third grade GT, and served as a Reading Specialist over a 14-year time period. I was honored to receive Teacher of the Year for my campus, served as Team Leader, was a founding member of the QISD Education Foundation, and was assigned as an instructional mentor for teachers.
This will be my fourth year as the Assistant Principal at Hackberry Elementary. I absolutely love my Hackberry FamiLE! I believe a collaborative school environment is the key to creating successful teachers and students. Partnerships with parents and community members are essential to enriching the experience at Little Elm ISD. I look forward to another year of being a part of the team at Hackberry Elementary School!
