Administration

Principal - Camie McGaughey

It is such a pleasure and honor to work with the students and the families of Walton County. I grew up in this community and love the fact that I can give back to the system that I attended and graduated from. My husband and I both have spent over 20 years as educators, and our passion is working with children. In fact, we have three children of our own (Cole, Parker and Maggie). Our children have also been blessed to be raised and educated here in Walton County.

I attended Troy State University, where I graduated with a degree in Early Childhood Education. So when I received an offer to teach 5th grade in my hometown, I was eager to begin my career here. Shortly afterward, I transferred to Gwinnett County, where I taught 4th and 5th graders for many years. While in Gwinnett, I obtained my Master's Degree in Specific Learning Disabilities and my Specialist’s Degree in Educational Leadership. I eagerly sought a position in leadership and began that path as an instructional coach in Walton County. It wasn't long before I knew that I wanted to go into administration. My journey in education brought me to Loganville Elementary School almost 8 years ago, where I truly love working with the students, staff and families. There is no place like the community of Loganville, and the staff/students at LES are the absolute best! I am humbled to work with such a committed staff that focuses on student success. The staff at LES truly invests in our children, each other and our community. Go LES Eagles!

I grew up in Walton County and graduated from Loganville High School in 1995. After high school, I attended Georgia College & State University where I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Community Health and Education in 2000. I took a small break from school and worked at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta as a Patient Educator for about a year until I decided to go back and get my Master's in Early Childhood Education from Piedmont College. I obviously love school entirely too much because after completing that program I went on to get my Gifted Endorsement and my Teacher Support Specialist. Finally, in May of 2010, I finished my days of attending school when I completed my Specialist in Reading Education and my Leadership Endorsement from the University of Georgia - GO DAWGS!!

I have been teaching in Walton County Schools my entire teaching career. I have been on staff at Atha Road Elementary and Sharon Elementary where I taught 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades. I was also a Gifted Resource teacher for 2 years at ARES. In 2011, I took a huge leap out of my comfort zone and moved up to YMS to teach the READ 180 Connection Course and after 2 years in working in Reading Connection I was blessed with a new opportunity and began working as a 7th Grade Language Arts Teacher! Now, I find myself back at "Home" at LES where I have taught 2nd grade and I am now serving as the Assistant Principal!

I was honored to be named Youth Middle School Teacher of the Year for the 2015-2016 School Year and I was also unbelievably humbled to serve as Walton County Teacher of the Year for the 2015-2016 School Year.

It truly seems like only yesterday that I walked into my first kindergarten classroom in a wonderful K-8 school in Tennessee, but in reality, it has been SEVERAL years! In addition to kindergarten, I have taught 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th and gifted education (K-5). I have also served as an instructional coach and gifted evaluator for our county. I have loved teaching at every grade level and the new opportunities I have been given through the years. I have an undergraduate degree in elementary education as well as both a master’s degree and a specialist degree in leadership. Throughout my career in education, I have added certifications in early childhood and gifted education.
 
My family and I moved to Loganville from Tennessee in 2002, and even though Georgia has been our home for many years, we still cheer for our Tennessee Vols! My husband, Rusty, also works for the Walton County School District as an assistant superintendent, and we have two daughters, Blakelee and Macy.
 
I am very blessed to be part of the LES family and look forward to serving our community!
