Mrs. Hines is honored to be the Assistant Principal of Instruction at such an extraordinary school, David Perdue Elementary. She grew up in the small town of Ideal, GA. The oldest of 3, she attended Macon County High School and then went on to obtain her B.S. in Early Childhood from Georgia Southwestern State University. As a 2nd language, she decided to gain an American Sign Language Endorsement where she was able to use this endorsement to work with hearing impaired students at Macon County Elementary School. She completed her M.S. in Reading and Literacy from Walden University in 2010. In 2016, I continued she professional growth and obtained her Ed.S in Educational Leadership from Georgia College.
Her teaching career in Houston County began in the Fall of 2005 when she began teaching at David Perdue Primary as a Pre-K teacher. During her time in Pre-K, she assisted the state’s Pre-K program, Bright From the Start, as a mentor Pre-K teacher. In 2010, she ventured into the land of 2nd grade. During her time in 2nd grade, she gained her Gifted Endorsement. Over time she became the host teacher for special education. While teaching at David Perdue Primary, she was given the opportunity to be the lead teacher for the grade level. She also served on the school’s Better Seeking Team from 2006-2016. In 2015, she was elected by my peers to represent David Perdue Primary as their Teacher of the Year. She went on to place in the county’s Top 10. She became the Assistant Principal of Discipline at David Perdue Elementary and Primary in 2017. In 2019, she took on the role of Assistant Principal of Instruction.
Although education is a large part of her life, family is just as important. The 2 roles she cherishes most in life are wife and mother. She is married to Steven and has 3 wonderful children. Austin is a crew chief on the A-10, Emily is a sophomore in college with a Biology major, and Brighton is a sophomore in high school. In her spare time, she also owns a goat farm. So when Mrs. Hines is not at the school, you may find her on the farm wrangling goats!

She loosk forward to collaborating with our dedicated staff, families, and administrative team to help provide the best educational experience for our students. It is great to be...a Perdue Elementary Bulldog!
