We’ve shared much success, expanded opportunities for students, come together in difficult times, and believe we are a family,” Hinson said. “I am excited to move into another season of my life, but my family and I are forever indebted for the blessing of being a part of the Central High School family.”
Sandra McAuley came to Keller ISD 11 years ago as principal of Keller Middle School and has worked in public education for 28 years. Prior to KISD, McAuley worked as principal in Galveston ISD, and held the positions of principal, assistant principal and teacher in Alvin ISD.
“My family and I feel truly blessed to have been a part of the Keller Middle School family for more than a decade now, where we’ve tackled challenging situations, loved on our students, shared many laughs, and grown as a school community,” McAuley said. “I’m so thankful for all the support and friendship over the years and for allowing us to be a part of the KMS community.
Tommie Johnson will retire after serving three years as Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources, with a total of 35 years in public education. Johnson came to Keller ISD from the Hurst-Euless-Bedford ISD, where she served as the Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources, and previously worked in other surrounding districts in a similar role. Prior to her work in HR, Johnson held leadership roles in Keller ISD as principal of Willis Lane Elementary, and the inaugural principal at the Bette Perot Elementary campus. She also has nearly 10 years of classroom teaching experience.
“Keller ISD is home for me; it is where we raised our children, and where I proudly served as a campus principal for eight years. I am beyond blessed to have returned and had the opportunity to work with such a talented team in an amazing district,” Johnson said. “I plan to remain an active member of the KISD community and look forward to new ways I can serve.”
The District will begin its search for these positions immediately, and will focus on finding the very best candidates to lead students and employees. Keller ISD celebrates Hinson, McAuley, and Johnson for their years of service in public education and the impact they have made on numerous students.
