Welcome to Hudson Middle School! I am honored to serve as the principal of this outstanding campus and community where academic excellence & rich traditions are valued. My educational career started at The Classical Center of Vial where I fell in love with the magnet program elements as I taught 3rd and 5th grades. As a dedicated life-long learner, I then taught 8th grade English and coached basketball and track at Coyle Middle School. Once I completed my Masters program in Educational Administration, I became an Instructional Support Teacher where I specialized in interventions for students in Kindergarten-5th grade in Garland ISD. After that incredible experience, I served Garland ISD in the role of an Instructional Design Facilitator for our elementary-high school campuses. These powerful experiences led me into administration where I served as a middle and high school assistant principal and an elementary principal before coming to Hudson Middle School as the principal.
My younger sister, Amanda Joy, who has Down Syndrome is my daily "WHY" I serve and advocate for all students. I am honored to serve our students at Hudson and take great pride in preparing all our students for the future. I look forward to working together to ensure our Hudson Hawks are provided the best educational experience possible.
For our Children,
Amber Hope- Principal
Once a Hawk, always a Hawk! I have had the privilege of serving in the role of teacher at Hudson Middle school before transitioning into my current administrative role with Garland ISD. My name is Cherita Chatman-Boyd and I am honored to return and serve the community, teachers and staff as Assistant Principal. I am happily married to my husband, Eddie, of eight years and together we have a son, Bryce, who began kindergarten this year! I attended Jackson State University where I earned both a Bachelors and Masters before moving on to Union University to receive my Ed.S. in Educational Leadership. I look forward to working with the Sachse community, teachers, staff and most importantly, our students and we will continue the strong legacy of Hudson Middle School in giving every student roots and wings! #HudsonStrong
Greetings Hudson family! My name is Barbara Figarelli and I am new to Garland I.S.D. This year I will begin my 26th year in education and I am honored to be part of the Hudson team. Originally from Springfield, Illinois, I moved to Texas early in my career and taught in Harlingen, Texas for 14 years. My family relocated to the Houston area in 2009. For the past 10 years, I have served the students and staff of Texas City I.S.D. as a teacher and most recently as an Assistant Principal. My area of focus is middle school. My goals are to help students transition successfully to middle school and also to lead the Math, Fine Arts, Special Education, and Elective departments as an integral part of the Hudson team. It will be my honor to serve as the 6th grade Assistant Principal here at Hudson.
In my spare time, I love being with my family and traveling. My husband, Joseph Figarelli, also works for Garland I.S.D. and our two children will be in 9th grade and 7th grade this year.
My name is Trey Scott, and I am excited to join the Hudson Middle School family for the 2019-2020 school year.
I graduated from the University of Texas at Arlington in 1997 with a BA in History and completed my MS in Educational Leadership from Texas A&M University - Commerce in 2012. My career began in Garland ISD in 1999 at South Garland High School, where I was a Spanish teacher and basketball coach. I also had stops at Memorial Pathway Academy and O’Banion Middle School before coming to Hudson.
As an educator, I am honored to play a small role in helping kids grow and realize their potential. I look forward to serving the faculty, students, and families of this community and being a part of the strong tradition that those who came before me have cultivated here. Go Hawks!
