Dr. Anita Mathis
Greetings HES Stakeholders:
My name is Dr. Anita C. Mathis and I am so excited to introduce myself as the new principal of Hunt Elementary School. Over the past 22 years, I have worked as a teacher and administrator, but I consider my most important job to be that of a child and teacher advocate. The faculty and I will spend a lot of time with your children, getting to know their personalities, learning styles and interests. I will work with all stakeholders to celebrate students and teachers successes, small and large.
Not only am I excited to begin working with your children, but also I look forward to the work we will do together. I truly believe that “It takes a village”. My goal is to ensure that all children are safe, learning, and college and career ready. Please know I will work tirelessly to ensure all children have the best possible experiences while at Hunt Elementary School.
I am honored to lead such an outstanding school community and eagerly anticipate a rewarding and successful year. Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions, concerns, or input at any time. Proud to be a Trojan!
Mr. Jamal Harris
My name is Jamal E. Harris and I am extremely grateful and humbled to become a part of the Hunt Elementary School family and serve as an Assistant Principal. I am originally from College Park, Georgia and made my way to the Middle Georgia area to attend “The” Fort Valley State University where I obtained a B.S. degree in Biology. I obtained a M. Ed degree in Administration and Supervision from Liberty University and I obtained an Ed. S degree in Educational Leadership from Columbus State University. I have been in education for 11 years and I have enjoyed every moment having the opportunity to affect young lives positively. I truly believe being an educator is a calling and I feel that helping children reach their maximum potential is definitely one of my missions in life. What motivates me to give each and every child the very best I have to offer is the joy they express as they gain the confidence of knowing they can be successful.
I am very excited to carry out the vision and mission of Peach County Schools as well as fulfill the vision that Dr. Mathis has proposed in being a model school for other schools to follow. I am also eager to build relationships with all the children, parents, and community of Hunt Elementary School. Continue to support and believe in us as we believe in you. I am truly proud to be a Trojan!

Mr. Roderick Earl
Assistant Principal/ Facilitator
Hello students, parents, family, and friends. My name is Mr. Roderick Earl, and I am one of the Assistant Principals at Hunt Elementary School. I would like to take this opportunity to share with you a little about myself. I was born and raised in Athens Georgia (Go Dawgs). Throughout my life, I have lived in north, middle, and south Georgia. I can proudly say that I am a product of the public school system, and I truly believe in its societal impact.
I began my educational career at Whitehead Elementary, Clarke Middle School, and Cedar Shoals High School. After graduating from high school, I attended Valdosta State University, where I obtained my Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in 2004. In 2012, I received my full Education Credentials as well as a Masters Degree in Teaching from Mercer University.
My professional teaching endeavors in the field of public education began when I started teaching in 2009 in Bibb County. I consider my professional experience in education to be well rounded. I have served in different capacities within the middle Georgia Area. I have rendered service as a teacher in various grade levels and have also served as a teacher mentor. My knowledge and experience in the education field became more refined when I decided to return to school and obtain an Educational Leadership degree from Valdosta State University in 2016.
I now proudly serve as one of the Assistant Principals at Hunt Elementary School, where I hope to continue to make a positive impact in students' academic achievements and attainment to a lifelong love for learning. Go Trojans!
