Wylie ISD has named veteran educator Kim Spicer as the new assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction. Spicer moves from Frenship High School where she served as the principal for the past 10 years. She replaces Dr. Jeannie Stone who left earlier this month and will officially begin her duties on August 10th.
“I am so excited about joining the Wylie ISD and becoming part of the Wylie Way,” said Spicer. “Wylie’s reputation for excellence is well known across the state of Texas. The C&I team is focused on student achievement. You don’t get to be the ‘Star of the STAAR’ without planning and hard work.”
As the assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction, Spicer will direct the instruction focus for Wylie ISD’s 900 teachers and 14,000 students. The division also includes: staff development, fine arts and special education.
Spicer received her Bachelor of Science from Angelo State University, and her love for science led her to the classroom. After 12 years as a science teacher, Spicer accepted the assistant principal position at Frenship High School. She continued to advance within the high school, eventually serving as the associate principal and the principal.
“I have known Kim for almost 20 years and she is the right person for Wylie ISD,” said Dr. David Vinson, Wylie ISD Superintendent. “She has West Texas values and a desire to see every student reach his or her fullest potential. She will fit perfectly with the Wylie Way.”
In addition to her 25 years as an educator, Spicer holds a mid-management certification from Angelo State University. She also earned her superintendent certification from Lubbock Christian University in 2008.
Spicer, and her husband Sid have three children; a daughter who teaches in Lubbock; a son who just graduated high school; and a daughter who will attend Wylie ISD.
