Kim Boedeker has been promoted to serve as a Deputy Superintendent at Melissa Schools, after serving for four years as the Executive Director of Academic Leadership, and upon completing her fourteenth year as an educator in Melissa.
Under this new title, Mrs. Boedeker will continue to serve Melissa Schools alongside Superintendent Keith Murphy, Deputy Superintendent Dr. Robert Rich, and the executive leadership team.
Prior to joining the executive leadership team, Mrs. Boedeker served for three years as the principal of Melissa Middle School. In 2005, she first came to Melissa to teach Kindergarten. Between 2006 and 2012, she served as a fourth grade teacher, an elementary assistant principal, and a middle school assistant principal.
Mrs. Boedeker says that she and her husband, Brent, are blessed and proud to call their three daughters Melissa Cardinals: their eldest, Madi, graduated from Melissa High School in 2014, Alli graduated in 2017, and Malori will graduate in 2020.
“Melissa is a place that I am so very grateful that I get to be a part of, daily,” Boedeker said. “The spirit and excellence of our schools and community bring me so much joy. Beginning my fifteenth year in Melissa, I have been blessed to walk the halls and the community as a teacher, an assistant principal, principal, district administration, and as a parent, and all humble me to my knees. Whichever hat I have the honor of wearing, I want to serve our students, staff, parents, and community. My favorite team is Team Melissa.”
“I’ve been in education for a long time and worked with many different people, and I believe that Kim Boedeker is one of the best,” Superintendent Murphy said. “She was highly successful as a middle school principal and later as our Executive Director of Academic Leadership. She has gone above and beyond any of my expectations. I am so very excited to work with her as a Deputy Superintendent. It was important for Mrs. Boedeker to be acknowledged for her work at Melissa Schools.”
Marcus Eckert, principal at Melissa Middle School, added, “Melissa ISD is a special district in a special time and place because of leaders like Kim Boedeker. Kim has a passion for coaching staff and students in continual improvement, and works closely with MISD school administrators providing leadership support, guidance, and mentoring. Kim exemplifies the MISD core values, and she craves the success of every student in the community. MMS is excited about her new role as Deputy Superintendent, as it will give her a larger platform to support the district with her curriculum, instruction, and professional leadership expertise.”
