• Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year.  I cannot believe that I am about to start my 7th year at Palmer High School.  This is also my 26th 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 27 years, and we have 4 beautiful children (Erika, age 26; Jonah, age 22; James, age 21; and Emilee, age 17, as well as four grandchildren---Jacob just turned five years old, his little brother Jensen is almost two years old, Isabella is almost 4 and a half years old, Levi is two years old, and he has a little brother on the way (due in January 2021) .  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 (whether they are face-to-face or virtual learners) 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.
