Little Elm ISD is pleased to announce Kelly Hastings as the principal of Lowell H.

Hastings attended college at the University of Texas at Arlington where she earned her bachelor’s and master’s degree.  She is currently writing her dissertation to earn a doctorate in Educational Leadership through Walden University.

We are excited to have Ms. Hastings join the Little Elm ISD famiLE. She is a strong instructional leader who brings years of experience. Her experience as a principal includes being selected for both the Harvard and Holdsworth Leadership Academies. 

“Ms. Hastings will undoubtedly make a positive impact on our students and teachers at Strike Middle School,” said Daniel Gallagher, superintendent. “She is a difference maker in terms of changing the lives of those around her. We are looking forward to having her serve the Little Elm ISD community.”  

“I appreciate that the world is changing and understand we need to change with it,” said Hastings. “We need to educate students for a world none of us know, so teaching students to think and to work well with others is our number one job. I seek to be an educator from which my grandchildren can benefit.”

Mrs. Hastings will join Kelley Carr at Lakeside Middle School as a co-principal in July 2019 prior to her role as principal of Strike Middle School which will open in August of 2020.
