"We are excited to welcome Kim Bain to the HPISD family," said Gena Gardiner, Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum, Instruction and Special Programs. "Kim has a strong reputation as an instructional leader, and her expertise is well-known among her colleagues. Her enthusiasm is contagious, and she clearly puts students first in her decision making. We know that Kim will be a valuable addition to our district."
Bain received her bachelor's degree from Texas A&M University. She earned her master's degree from The University of Texas - Arlington, and she also holds a Principal Certification.
"It is a privilege to join Highland Park ISD," Bain said. "During the transition into my new position, I will begin serving our K-6 ELA teachers and leading our TAG program for grades K-12. I look forward to partnering with teachers as we build students' capacity for critical, creative, and innovative thinking so that our Scots will succeed in the future they create."
