Dr. Lakesha Whitfield

I am Dr.  LaKesha Whitfield and I have been an educator for 18  years. I obtained my bachelor’s degree and master’s degree, both in mathematics, from the University of Texas at Austin. I earned my Doctorate of Leadership in Educational Administration and my Superintendents Certification from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor. I obtained my principal certification from Region XIII.

Before joining Hutto ISD, I was a mathematics teacher at Hendrickson High School in Pflugerville ISD for nine years, where I served in various capacities on numerous campus and district level committees. I have had the pleasure of working with Hutto ISD for eight years. During those eight years with Hutto ISD,  I have served as the principal of River Horse Academy, as Hutto High School's first associate principal, as an assistant principal, and as an instructional coach. During the 2014-2015 school year, I was named Employee of the Year for Hutto High School and for Hutto ISD. Most recently I was given the esteemed honor of being named the principal of the Hutto 9th Grade Center (NGC). 

Being announced the principal of the NGC gives me a platform to create and provide an atmosphere of learning for all with the goal of changing lives and creating new legacies. Additionally, this assignment allows me to live out my life’s purpose, for this assignment is my love, my passion, and what I was created to do!
