Meet Our Principal

Robert Butler, M.Ed.

Greetings Bobcat Families,

I am excited to return to KMS as your new principal! I was blessed to serve the KMS community as assistant principal from 2012 until 2015. I look forward to working with the KMS community to make the 2017-18 school year truly special for our school community.  I believe that education is a partnership between a school and the community. I look forward to collaborating with you, the staff, and students at KMS to provide a safe and nurturing learning environment where your student(s) can reach his or her academic, social, and emotional potential.

As the son of a Dallas Police officer, I am proud to come from a family with a background in public service. This year will mark my 21st year in public education.  I began my teaching and coaching career at Briarhill Middle School in Highland Village, Texas. After that I taught social studies and coached football at Marcus High School in Flower Mound, Texas and Ryan High School in Denton, Texas. Prior to returning to KMS, I proudly served the KISD community as assistant principal at the Early Education Center.

I believe that education is a tool we can use to make positive changes in our lives. I am a graduate of Blue Ridge High School in Blue Ridge, Texas.  I received my Bachelor’s Degree from Texas A&M – Commerce and my Master’s Degree from Lamar University. I value learning as a life-long process. I have completed my superintendent certification and hope to someday pursue my Doctorate in Education.

My passion outside of school is my family. My wife Kathy and I have two daughters, Lyndsay and Stephanee. We have also been blessed with two wonderful grandchildren, Avarie and Alivia. In addition to spending time with my family, I enjoy sports and traveling.

I look forward to the many adventures that the 2017-18 school year will surely bring. My door is always open. Feel free to contact me if you ever have any questions or concerns regarding your student(s). Thank you for allowing me to be a part of the “KMS Family.”

Go Bobcats!
