Shawn Kibel

I am an educational technology professional and proud father of 5 children: Cody Allen Kibel (b. 1995), Brooke Leanne Kibel (b.1997), Sarah Grace ("Gracie") Kibel (b.2006), Christian James ("C.J.") Kibel (b. 2010), and Logan Alexander Kibel (b. 2012). The younger three live with me and keep my hands pretty full. I was born in San Diego, CA in 1972 and grew up in Southern California. I graduated from Garden Grove H.S. in 1990. After 2 years of playing football and general studies in college from 1990-1992, I joined the Marine Corps in 1993. I served as a correctional officer, military police officer, marksmanship instructor, pistol range NCO, competitive shooter, and finally as a member of the Commanding General's staff before being discharged (honorably) at the rank of E-5 (sergeant) in May of 1999. After the Marine Corps, I served as a finance executive with both Drive Financial Services and City Credit Union in Dallas, TX spanning 1999 to 2007. After the crash of the financial services sector I sought a career change and took a position as a help desk technician for Honey Grove ISD (a small school district in NE Texas) in September 2008. I stayed there until moving on to Coppell ISD in October 2011 and finally came back to work for Honey Grove ISD in the summer of 2012 as the Technology Director; the position I hold today. I enjoy working with technology, students, and teachers and am very blessed to work in a position that allows for a good work/family balance of time. I am a believer in Christ and thank God every day for the many blessings he has, and continues to rain down on me.
