• Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year.  I cannot believe that I am about to start my 5th year at Palmer High School.  This is also my 24th year of teaching English, and it is still my favorite subject...I love what I do!  Just a little bit about myself...my husband and I have been married for just over 25 years (we recently returned from our Alaskan cruise celebrating this milestone), and we have 4 beautiful children (Erika, age 24; Jonah, age 20; James, age 19; and Emilee, age 15, as well as two grandchildren---Jacob just turned three years old, and Isabella is almost 2 and a half years old---grandbaby #3 is due in November).  I graduated from Corsicana High School in 1991, Navarro College in 1993, and Sam Houston State University in 1995...go BearKats! 
     
    I am looking forward to getting to know each of my students and hopefully instilling a love (or at least a like) for English.  I have high expectations for each of my students, yet I realize these expectations cannot be met without a passion for teaching on my part.  I try to make myself available to my students before and after school, as well as during Activity Period.  I can easily be contacted through my school email at lmckissack@palmer-isd.org or by calling the school.  
     
    Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to teach your children.  If I can ever be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.
