HES Principal's Page

Elise Heger


I am so excited to be the principal at Hugoton Intermediate School.

Our school prides itself on high achievement, talented and committed teachers,

an involved parent community and happy, energetic students.

My desire for professional growth and learning led me to a Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction

from Emporia State University. In 2012, I completed a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership also

from Emporia State University. I am currently a doctoral student at Southwestern College in Winfield, Ks.

My classroom experience includes pre-school, kindergarten, 4 th grade and sixth grade teaching. I am

married to another native of Hugoton, Kirk Heger. We have two children, Wade and Marlyn.

I am at my best working with other educators to strive to meet the needs of our students.
