Background: Welcome to Kemp Intermediate! I am Kim McDowell and proud to be the principal of our school. I grew up locally and graduated from Kemp High School. I have two children and both attended Kemp schools K - 12, received a great education and graduated as Yellow Jackets. I obtained by Bachelor's degree from the University of Texas at Tyler in Elementary Education with a minor in Psychology. I have two Master's degrees, one in Curriculum and Instruction from U T Tyler and one from Texas A & M Commerce in Educational Leadership. It is my pleasure to partner with you in educating your child.
Quote & Message: "Teaching is leaving a vestige of oneself in the development of another," so correctly quoted by Eugene Bertin. You see, I believe every child is a "Bundle of Potential and Promise," and every child should experience the "Joy of Learning," each and every day at school. Together, we can provide the opportunity for every child to find their true potential.
