Mrs. Kayla Herron

Mrs. Herron loves being a part of the Academy family. She grew up in Plano and graduated from Plano West in 2009. Kayla played softball for Southwestern Christian University, and earned her B.S. in Health, Physical Education, and Sport Management. Securing the Quidditch Cup for Hufflepuff and facilitating the first campus-wide Humans vs. Zombies live-action game were among her proudest achievements at the university level.

Mrs. Herron found her passion for youth development through instructing youth activities aboard Carnival Cruise Lines. She went on to facilitate Social Emotional Learning programs for outdoor education companies in China and South Africa. After returning home to Texas, Kayla began working to implement SEL programs in Dallas ISD through after-school programs and summer camps. Mrs. Herron loves working with all the amazing learners and staff in the magical AHS environment.

In her free time, Mrs. Herron enjoys listening to life-changing podcasts, camping, and spending time with friends and family.
