Dear Hampton Middle School and the Hampton community:
I am so excited that I have been given the opportunity to be the principal of Hampton Middle School. I was born in Hampton and have lived here for almost 39 years. I was even a Hampton Hornet when playing little league football. I have 16 years of education experience and 13 of the years have been served with Henry County Schools. Prior to being selected to serve Hampton Middle School, I worked at Gordon College as an Admission Representative, Henry County High as a teacher, and Woodland Middle School as an Assistant Principal. Prior to education, I obtained a BBA in Marketing from Georgia College, a Master’s Degree in Education from Troy University, and a Specialist Degree in Leadership from Georgia College. I am married to the wonderful Kristy Shadden and we have four awesome children ranging from 3 years old to 17 years old.
I believe that each student should have the opportunity for success. At Hampton Middle School, we will work to create an environment that accentuates the individual student and their needs. In order to accomplish a learning environment that truly educates your child, we must have rigorous instruction and activities that are relevant, team together to create and maintain a learning environment conducive for learning, and create relationships to truly know what each student needs.
I look forward to working with the students, teachers, staff, parents, and all stakeholders of Hampton Middle School. Together we can make Hampton Middle School a learning institution that is rigorous, relevant, and one that values relationships.
Mr. Jason Shadden, Ed.S
