Mr. Thomas M. Amos III, M.S.
Welcome back for the 23-24 school year! Mr. Thomas M. Amos III is in his 23rd year in education and his 8th year as the Campus Assessment Coordinator at KHS. He is a KHS alumni, having graduated from Kempner HS in 1996 with honors and in the top 10% of his class. He was the first person on his mother's side of his family to graduate from college and also to obtain a Masters Degree.
Mr. Amos is in charge of coordinating all State Assessments, including STAAR EOC testing, STAAR Interim Assessments, TELPAS testing for our English Learners, the PSAT for our 10th and 11th graders, and SAT School Day for our 11th graders. He also helps coordinate interventions for students needing to retest a STAAR EOC Assessment to ensure that they are on track to graduate.
Personally, he has been married for almost 24 years. His wonderful wife, Julie, is beginning her 24th year in education and her 12th year as the Director of Bands at Sartartia MS in FBISD. We are proud parents of two adult sons and a ten year old boxer mix.
Please feel free to contact Mr. Amos if you have any questions that he might be able to assist you with!
