Ms. Kelsey White (Assistant Principal)

Hello Hubbard Families!

Upon graduating from the University of California Santa Barbara, I was uncertain about the path I wanted to take in my career. However, after volunteering in multiple schools as a teaching assistant, I discovered my passion for teaching. I began my teaching career in Oakland Unified School District as a Math and Language Arts Teacher for AmeriCorps.

Over several school years, I worked at ACE Esperanza Middle School where I taught 7th grade English for four years and served as the English Department Chair. During this time, my administrators provided me with constructive feedback which I received and implemented to support my students and grow as an educator. It was during this period that I also earned my Master's in Education from Boston University and a teaching credential from Alliant International University.

For the 2022-2023 school year, I had the opportunity to return as a School Leader to work alongside the Principal and learn the skills of an Assistant Principal. My dedication is to empowering students and fostering academic growth, and I bring with me a deep commitment to student success and a collaborative approach to leadership. Through coaching, strategic planning, and community engagement, I am devoted to creating a supportive and empowering environment for both students and educators. My experience, coupled with a strong foundation in instructional leadership, equips me to drive positive change and foster a culture of continuous improvement. As the new Assistant Principal at Hubbard Media Arts Academy, I look forward to building strong relationships with students, families, teachers, and staff.
