DeQueen Primary School Welcomes Mrs. Kayla Morris as Assistant Principal
Kayla is a DeQueen High School alumni with fifteen years of teaching experience in the district. She graduated from Southern Arkansas University with a degree in education. Miss Morris has served as a kindergarten and first-grade teacher and was recently the DI Director for De Queen Primary. During her fifteen years of teaching, she worked with and was mentored by many great administrators. From that experience, she gained a desire to take on an administrative position and implement changes from outside of the classrooms that would benefit students and foster a thriving learning environment.
