Welcome to Kilgore Primary School! I am excited begin my 2nd year as the KPS Principal. I have been in education for 24 years. I spent 20 years at Chandler Elementary as a 2nd grade teacher, Asst. Principal and Principal. I also taught Kindergarten in Louisiana before moving to Texas. I graduated from the University of Louisiana at Monroe with a degree in Early Childhood Education. I completed my Masters Degree at Stephen F. Austin University.
I am married to Jay Dean, a football coach and Pre-Ap Biology teacher at KHS. I have two daughters. Hunter attends pharmacy school at the University of Louisiana at Monroe. Madison attends the University of North Texas. They are both KHS graduates and have loved attending KISD schools. We enjoy sporting events, being at the lake or beach and just being together.
At KPS we are dedicated to your child and working with parents as partners in education. Our goal is to provide learning in a safe environment where students love to learn and want to come to school. The KPS staff is here for you as parents, please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.
Together we can work to make your child successful! We are looking forward to a great year at KPS! We are looking forward to "A Year of Awesome!"
