Howdy! I am excited to be able to serve as the Associate Principal of the new Agriculture Science and Technology Academy here in Northside. I first began to work with our agriculture students at O’Connor High School last school year and discovered how much character and resolve they have. It is amazing the time and effort that our students and their families put into the hands-on agricultural experiences that take place on this campus and around the community. I hope to use my talent and experience to help guide our students to achieve their fullest potential in all fields of study at the Agriculture Academy.
I was born and raised in Caldwell, Texas and graduated high school in 1999. I graduated with a BA in History from Sam Houston State University in 2004 and started my teaching career in Austin, Texas. I arrived to the “Promised Land” of Northside in 2008 and continued my teaching career in social studies at Clark and then at Brandeis. I received my Masters degree in Educational Leadership from UTSA in 2011 and started administrative work in 2013 at Zachry Middle School. I came to O’Connor High School in 2016 as an Assistant Principal and fell in love with the OC community. It is my sincere honor and privilege now to assist in transitioning the very successful O’Connor Agriculture Program into the Agriculture Science and Technology Academy opening this school year. I look forward to the work ahead and the opportunity to serve this wonderful community.
Mr. Hawkins grew up in Edinburg, Texas on a citrus farm (navel oranges, Ruby Red, and Rio Star grapefruit). Growing up Mr. Hawkins showed steers and pigs through 4H and FFA programs. Mr. Hawkins obtained his undergraduate degree in Interdisciplinary Agriculture from Texas Tech University and currently holds two master's degrees. His first master's degree is in Agriscience from Texas A&M Kingsville and his second master's degree is in Educational Leadership and Administration from UT Tyler. Mr. Hawkins has been an Ag teacher here at O'Connor for 16 years where he serves as the FFA coordinator and the Goat Project Leader. Mr. Hawkins's whole family is involved in the district with his wife working as an elementary teacher at Leon Springs Elementary and his two kids attending Leon Springs as well. Mr. Hawkins is very excited and proud that his own kids will be showing chickens this year at the Gerlach Stock Show. Mr. Hawkins enjoys bass fishing and spending time in the outdoors in his free time. It is his belief that it is important to share his passion, knowledge, and love for Agriculture with others, which is why he loves working with our students. A fun fact about Mr. Hawkins is that he used to serve as a radio DJ for KURV 710 AM radio delivering the ag report to listeners.
