Shane Hopkins


I was raised in Hartselle, AL but am proud to call Priceville my home since 2003.  I have been married to my wife for 22 yrs. and we are blessed with five children who all attend Priceville schools.  When I am not working at school, I enjoy spending time with my family, working in the yard/garden, or serving my church family. 


I have been in education for 21 years.  I taught AP Government/Economics along with other history classes for 16 years.   All of my time serving as a teacher was at Priceville High School where I also served as the head baseball coach for 13 years as well as other coaching duties. During my time as a teacher I served as head of the History Department, leader of Student Government Association, and Senior Sponsor. 

For two years, I served as the assistant principal at Priceville Junior High.  I worked with Mrs. McCulloch and the wonderful faculty there to maintain the excellence and tradition in academics and athletics.

For two years, I served as the assistant principal at Priceville High School, alongside Mr. Lewis White.

I am honored to be the principal here at PHS working to continue and improve on past successes and help make Priceville High School a standard for learning and academic growth.
