My name is Casey Hemphill. I grew up in Poteau and graduated from PHS in 2005. I attended CASC, the University of Arkansas, and Southeastern Oklahoma state college during my undergrad years, and graduated from Southeastern in 2010. I have been in education for 11 years. I began my teaching career at Monroe Public schools, where I spent four years, followed by three years at Wister Public Schools. I am beginning my fifth year at Poteau Public Schools. I have a Masters degree in secondary administration from East Central University which I completed in 2012. I have been married to my wife Leslie since 2014. We enjoy traveling during the summer when we are able to and in my free time I enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking and hunting.
