Mrs. Lorie Kempen

I began my teaching career after graduating from Texas A&M University with a BS in Agricultural Education in 1991.  I have called East Central home my entire professional career.  Currently, I am not only Floral Design Instructor,  LDE/CDE team coach, but I also serve as the lead teacher for the Agricultural Science Department.  Students can earn both Agricultural Elective Credit, Speech Credit and Art Credit through my various classes in this department.  
Additionally, you can find me managing the Steer, Heifer and Rabbit Projects for our Agricultural Science Students. I have two beautiful daughters that have attended East Central ISD and my husband, Danny Kempen, which is currently a teacher within the Agricultural Science Department.
