Welcome to Kilgore Intermediate School and the 2018-2019 school year! I am excited to be the KIS principal and have the opportunity to work with the awesome KIS team, students and parents!
I graduated from Baylor University with a Bachelors of Business Administration in Management and Accounting. After moving to Kilgore, I returned to college and graduated from the University of Texas at Tyler with a Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education. I completed my Masters of Education in Educational Leadership from UT Tyler.
This is my 6th year as principal and my 28th year in education. I taught one year at Jackson Middle School in Garland ISD as a 6th grade reading and social studies teacher. I have worked in Kilgore ISD as a 4th grade teacher for 17 years and as an assistant principal at Chandler Elementary for the 4 years before becoming principal at Kilgore Intermediate School.
As an educator, I believe all children can learn and it is our responsibility to provide a standard of excellence to ensure all students are successful.
I am married to Craig Slayter, a CPA, and we have four children: Colton, 24, and 18 year old triplets - Katie, Kallie and Coby. My hobbies include reading, spending time with my family, and watching sports and dance.
