Meet the Associate Principal

Kathryn Palmer


My name is Katie Palmer.  This upcoming school year will be my 17th year in education.  I grew up in Georgia, graduated from the University of Georgia, and taught English for 3 years in Athens, Georgia.  After those 3 years, I moved to Texas and taught English at DeWitt Perry Middle School for 12 years, 5 of which I served at the Language Arts Department Manager.  During that time, I earned my masters from UNT.  Following Perry, I was assistant principal for 2 years at Newman Smith High School.  This is my first year as the associate of Turner High School.  I have a wonderful husband that I have been married to for 9 years and I am dreaming of celebrating our 10 year anniversary where we were married, at a fabulous resort in Mexico!  We have 2 hilarious and beautiful children.  Luke is 6 years old and starting 1st grade.  Lucy is 3 years old and starting pre-k.  I also have a boxer named Jax.  I am very excited to start this new adventure at Turner and to continue my time in CFBISD.
