Mr. Keith Kirkpatrick
My work area code is 753652 and when you add it all up it you get 28 years of working in this wonderful business. I began my career at West Mesquite High School back in 1990 where I taught Spanish, English, and Yearbook for seven years. I moved into administration and spent the next eight years working as an Assistant Principal at two different Middle Schools. In 2005 I was hired at Wylie High School as an Assistant Principal and spent six years there, then moved over to the East side of town and served that part of our community for five years. This is my third year here at Achieve and I love it. I haven't done any research to verify this, but I believe I'm the only employee in the district to work at all three high schools!
I've been married for 30 years to Mary Kirkpatrick who happens to be the Librarian/Media Specialist at Wylie High School. We have two children ages 33 and 25 and one granddaughter.
I graduated from East Texas State University with my Bachelor of Arts in December of 1989 and then earned my Master of Education from Texas A&M Commerce in December of 1996.
