Meet the Principal

Matthew Pruitt

Matthew Pruitt

My name is Matthew Christopher Pruitt. I just completed my 11th year in Carrollton-Farmers Branch Independent School District. I am looking forward to serving the McKamy family and community as your Principal! I taught 5th Grade ELA/Social Studies at Donald H. Sheffield Intermediate School for 3 years and at Ted Polk Middle School for 2 years. I was an Assistant Principal for 5 years.

I was born and raised in Grambling, Louisiana. I have a wonderful mom, 3 amazing sisters, and a supportive brother. I graduated from Grambling State University (The Place Where Everybody is Somebody). I majored in Elementary Education. I completed my master’s degree at The University of North Texas, where I majored in Educational Administration.

I’m excited about this school year! We have a saying at McKamy, “Once a Trailblazer, Always A Trailblazer.” We are excited about this year! I want you to know your students are in good hands. Our theme this year is “Teaching is HEART Work” at McKamy Elementary!

What comes from the heart, reaches the heart! We are looking forward to a fantastic school year! If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to give me a call.
