Miss Katie Keyes

Excited to join the Boswell Pioneer staff this year, Ms. Keyes is in her ninteeth year of teaching.  In addition to teaching Chemistry, Ms. Keyes serves as a Student Council Advisor.  Ms. Keyes sees her job as leading students to master course material but, more importantly, for students to leave her classes with a love for life-long learning and an intrinsic belief in their ability to make a positive impact on the world.

Ms. Keyes grew up in several cities in west and the panhandle of Texas, graduating from Sands High School in Ackerly, Texas in 1994.  She received a Bachelor of Science degree in Composite Science Teaching in 1998 and began her teaching career at Keller High School that year.  Ms. Keyes taught Chemistry, Biology, Astronomy, Integrated Physics and Chemistry, and Student Leadership throughout her career in Keller, and served as the Student Council Advisor and an Assistant Track Coach.  She was selected as Teacher of the Year in 2005.  In 2008, she received her Masters of Education in Leadership of Learning, administrative certification, and conflict resolution certification.  Ms. Keyes has also been named as a Texas Association of Student Councils' Teacher of the year and was a Regional Warren E. School Advisor of the Year, which made her one of the eight finalist for the national award.    

Ms. Keyes comes from a long line of educators, two of which are her parents who are retired teachers.  Though retired, her parents are still very involved in schools; her father still coaches at Ft. Worth Christian School, while her mother serves on the school board of Keller Independent School District. Although Ms. Keyes does not have children of her own, she is thankful to be a second mom to several of her students and former students.  Additionally, she is actively involved in her church, The Hills Southlake Campus.  She volunteers in both the youth and women's ministries and sings in the worship band. Outside of school, she enjoys watching movies and seeking out fun projects to tackle from Pinterest.
