Brandon Hubbard, a native of Beaumont, Texas, earned a BS in Biochemistry from Baylor University, MSEd in Curriculum and Instruction from Baylor University and Superintendent Certification from Lamar University. Mr. Hubbard began his career as a physics and chemistry teacher at the A.J. Moore Academy in Waco ISD. Eschewing a typical principal preparation program, Mr. Hubbard was promoted to Assistant Principal after just two years as a classroom teacher.
Mr. Hubbard believes that pursuing excellence embodies the deconstruction and retooling of mediocre missions, mindsets and methodologies. The alleviation of opportunity gaps is essential to student success. He believes that we must reflect on our systems in order to ensure that all students have the opportunity to learn at the highest levels. In addition, Chilton ISD will work to eliminate achievement gaps. The Chilton ISD culture must be such that we expect each student to reach academic and social success. In thinking about the task ahead, Mr. Hubbard referenced a passage from Nehemiah 2:18, “…Let us rise and build. Then they set their hands to this good work.”
Mr. Hubbard and his wife LaLinda have three children, JayLynne-a senior at Chilton High School, Karlton-a junior at Chilton High School, and Isaiah-a Pre-K student at Chilton Elementary.
