Jennifer DePriest, Assistant Principal of Instruction


Dear Herndon Families,


I am honored to serve as Assistant Principal of Instruction at Herndon Magnet School. It is a joy to be back at the school where my love for learning and desire to become a teacher sparked. I am proud to have been a student at Herndon when it was opened as a magnet school in 1983. The school - students, faculty, parents, and staff - was full of enthusiasm and excited to have a wonderful education opportunity. Voting for the school colors, mascot, and names of the newspaper and yearbook was an honor and privilege that I still hold dear.


This is my fourth year as an administrator and my twenty-third year as an educator. Prior to arriving at Herndon, I spent six years teaching upper level math at my Almar Mater, C.E. Byrd. I have a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics Education and Master's degree in Educational Leadership. I enjoy the new challenges of administration and look forward to many successful years at Herndon. 


I am here to support the faculty, staff, students, and families in any way I can. Please feel free to contact me if I can be of service to you. My email address is and the direct line to my office is (318) 364-1456. I look forward to meeting you as we work together to build and grow the Hawk family of leaders and learners.
