Dr. Hudson began her teaching career in 1996 as an exchange teacher in Jamaica where she taught all grade levels at an All Age School (K-9) in the countryside. Her major was mathematics, but because of the lack of teacher availability, she was prepared to teach any subject in the country school. She later transitioned to Gastonia, North Carolina to teach Algebra I. She remained there until she was drawn back to school to complete her Masters at Gardner-Webb University in School Administration. While at Gardner Webb she taught math foundation courses at Cleveland Community College along with Birth - K classes. In 2007 she returned to Gaston County to teach another year until she was named the assistant principal of one of the largest high schools in the county. She remained there for 5 years until being promoted to Principal of the feeder Middle School.
During her time as an Administrator she supervised middle, and high schools teachers studying to become licensed Administrators. However, the last five years have afforded her the opportunity to work in teacher and administrator preparation programs. Her duties included but were not limited to, overseeing the observations of teachers, evaluation process of assistant principals, parent complaints, and student transfers for the district, along with monitoring and assessing Taskstream artifacts. Her passion is running and being involved in family activities both near and far.
