Happy 2022-2023 School Year!
I am Kathy DeGeest, Principal here at MPS. This is my 15th year as an educator. I spent several years teaching elementary and middle school in Irving ISD and Mansfield ISD. I was an administrator in both Arlington ISD and Mansfield ISD before joining the team in Maypearl 4 years ago. My original bachelor’s degree was earned from Texas A&M in College Station, and I earned my master’s from Concordia University in Austin. Education is a second career for me having spent the first 10 years of my career in non-profit.
My husband, Matt, is a Maypearl alum. We have two boys Kaleb and Kase who are both active in all things sports. They keep us very busy, and they are a huge blessing to us!
We are so glad to have each of you at Maypearl Primary School this year. Our community is growing very fast, and our staff is so thankful that you’ve chosen us for your student’s education. We love our little Panthers! We look forward to building a relationship with all of our new families and getting to know our returning families better. It is my sincere hope that MPS is a place you feel welcome, and your students learn to love school with a strong foundation. Being part of your family’s academic journey is my honor.
