Mr. Thomas M. Amos III, M.S.
Thomas Amos is in his 17th year in education and his 2nd year as the Campus Assessment Coordinator at KHS. He graduated from Kempner HS in 1996 and is thrilled to be able to say that he is both a KHS alumni and employee! He is in charge of coordinating all STAAR EOC testing, TELPAS testing, and the PSAT. He also is in charge of coordinating 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 18 years. His wonderful wife, Julie, is the Director of Bands at Sartartia MS in FBISD. Together they have two sons. Their oldest is a sophomore in high school wanting to eventually double major in Computer Science and Meteorology and their youngest is a 7th grader in his first year of Junior High who aspires to be a surgeon when he gets older.
Please feel free to contact Mr. Amos if you have any questions that he might be able to assist you with!
