Mr. Michael Keith
This will be my fourth year at Pilot Point ISD. I have been in education for now eleven years. I began my career as a substitute teacher in Whitesboro ISD and S&S ISD and worked in that area for four years. Afterwards, I taught JH and HS English at Saint Jo ISD for three years. I will be teaching English II and Practical Writing at the high school. In my experience, I have coached UIL Academics across several areas ranging across several subjects. At Pilot Point, I am the HS UIL OAP Director and the UIL Journalism coach.
