Mrs. DeJonnette Childress

DeJonnette Childress is a native Houstonian and a proud wife and mother of two. Following undergraduate studies at the University of Houston with a Bachelor of Sciences degree in Psychology, she completed her graduate work at University of Saint Thomas with a Master of Education degree in Educational Leadership. After 9 years as a successful English and History teacher, she felt empowered with a strong desire to maximize her impact on our students and the community. Mrs. Childress pursued a path of educational leadership and became an ELA Instructional Specialist at Key Middle School in 2019. There, she supports teachers and staff to continue the school’s record of instructional excellence, learns about practices that most greatly influenced student achievement and develops instructional leadership skills to better serve the students at Key and throughout the district through collaboration with other school leaders. 

Mrs. Childress is quite excited to continue her adventure in education - in service of the students, families, teachers and staff at Key Middle School for the 2020-21 school year!
