Ms. Jacelyn Kyle
Jacelyn Kyle grew up in Dallas, TX and began her education at home where her mother was her first teacher. She later began her formal education in schools within the Dallas Independent School District and graduated from Skyline High School. The decision to pursue a career in education was highly influenced by her grandfather who inspired her to become an educator and ensure that all students reach their full potential. Kyle comes from a family of educators, her grandfather was the assistant superintendent of Beaumont Independent School District, her grandmother owned and operated an Early Childhood Center in Louisiana, and her mother served the Dallas Independent School District as an educator and central staff administrator.
Kyle attended Stephen F. Austin. Following her family’s footsteps, she earned a degree in education. After obtaining her Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies with an emphasis in Early Childhood, she launched her teaching career in DISD. Kyle returned to serve the Pleasant Grove community as an educator and began teaching at John Quincy Adams in 2011. She taught second grade and loved the experience. Kyle looped with her students and taught them the next year in third grade. In effort to improve her classroom instructional skills, as well as provide a more positive impact on school and community, she decided to further her education. Kyle returned to Stephen F. Austin and in 2015 she obtained her Master’s degree in Educational Leadership. Soon afterwards, she had the opportunity to demonstrate her knowledge of effective classroom instructional techniques to novice teachers as a mentor teacher in the Roger Q. Mills Summer Learning Lab. Since beginning her teaching career she has taken on a variety of leadership roles, including grade level lead. During the 2016-2017 school year Kyle was named Teacher of the Year.
Kyle is motivated to do research on innovative teaching practices. She makes learning a unique experience for students by providing them with challenges that stimulate their thoughts and process skills. An innovator with a dynamic zest for education, she joined the Solar team in 2017. At Solar she continues to demonstrate innovative learning techniques through her passion for teaching. Her philosophy is simple. She embodies motivating students while teaching them to be intrinsically motivated problem solvers and life learners.
