Ms. Kim Schrader
Hello Shepton Community,
I am honored and excited to serve as an Assistant Principal here at Shepton High School. While this will be my 1st year in the Plano Independent School District, I have been an Assistant Principal for 5 years. I spent 2 years supporting Hudson Middle School and 3 years supporting Sellers Middle School in Garland ISD as an Assistant Principal. Before I was an Assistant Principal, I was an ESL Facilitator/Coach in Coppell ISD for 4 years after having been an English Language Arts and Reading/ESL/Social Studies teacher in Garland for 5 years prior to that.
I began my teaching career by teaching overseas in various countries before I moved to Texas, where I joined the United States education system for the first time. I grew up in Las Vegas, NV and attended the university there, with a year of study abroad in Spain and China as well as a year national exchange in the Bay Area, CA. I have always been a student of the world and people. I love the synergistic cycle of teaching and learning. My greatest passion is helping others find theirs, so teaching was definitely my heart's calling.
I should be finishing up my PhD in Leadership and Organizational Management within this year (fingers crossed) and am excited by that milestone approaching.
I am here if you should need anything! I became an educator because I believe every person is uniquely valuable to this world and it is our job as educators to establish a safe, supportive, innovative environment where everyone can discover and be their greatest selves!
It's a great day to be a stallion!
