MPACT 2013 has ended

The Curriculum & Instruction Department of Manor ISD is pleased to announce MPACT.  Through MPACT, learners will be inspired to impact our students, exchange ideas with other teacher leaders, administrators, and community partners; and learn ways to engage and motivate our diverse student population. This teaching and learning institute is appropriate for all of us because we are interested in "Impacting Student Achievement Through Engaged, Aligned Classrooms."  

We encourage you to arrive early for check in to get your swag bag and to start your day networking with your fellow MISD educators before the sessions begin . Click here to download a pdf version of the full progam for MPACT. It will provide you with tips on how to make the most of your day. Additionally, SCHED Planner is the tool you will use to build your personal itinerary for MPACT. Most sessions are designed for any audience and  sessions are faciliated by your peers and some guest speakers. If you are unsure how to register, watch this video.

Star the sessions that you would like to attend. Choose only ONE session per timeslot. It will be important that you bring your technology since we will not have paper copies available and any updates to sessions and session locations will be available on this site only. Remember to bookmark the mobile app or print your schedule before you come. Dress comfortably as there are some sessions that will be very interactive. Finally, check out all of our participating vendors and exhibitors. Stop by their tables to hear and/or see what they have to offer. You never know what types of goodies you will pick up at their tables or what you may win at the end of the day.  See you at MPACT! 



Kevin Brackmeyer

Manor Independent School District
Superintendent of Schools
Manor, TX
Born and raised in Harlingen, Texas, Kevin Brackmeyer attended Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas where he received a bachelor’s degree in psychology before returning to his hometown to begin working as a program supervisor for Tropical Texas MHMR. Brackmeyer worked with various individuals with disabilities and it was here that he met Edwin whom he has cared for throughout the past 25 years and who is a valued member of their family.

Pursuing his passion for teaching, Brackmeyer began his educational career as a teacher at Harlingen High School South in 1989. He was instrumental in developing a successful vocational program for students with disabilities. After five years in the classroom, Brackmeyer earned his master’s degree in educational administration from the University of Texas at Brownsville and transitioned into administration with the Harlingen Consolidated Independent School District as an assistant principal at Coakley Middle School. He would go on to become the Principal at Coakley Middle School helping lead the campus to TEA recognized ratings. The campus also received recognition as the Reader's Choice #1 Middle School for three consecutive years and in 2007, Brackmeyer was chosen as the Reader's Choice Best Administrator.

In 2008, Brackmeyer and his family, wife Cindy of 18 years and sons William (10) and Brent (7), and Edwin (55) moved to Austin where he worked for the Austin Independent School District as an executive principal for the office of middle schools, helping lead principals in transforming struggling campuses.

In 2009 Brackmeyer was selected as the principal of Manor High School for the Manor Independent School District. Under the leadership of Brackmeyer, Manor High School underwent an impressive transformation with improved academic achievements that resulted in the campus becoming academically acceptable for the first time in four years. During Brackmeyer's tenure, Manor High School experienced significant increases in graduation rates, annual increases in the number of college bound graduates, as well as significant increases in scholarship awards. Brackmeyer's focus on changing the culture of the campus also included a strong commitment to promoting the fine arts program which has led to several award winning performances at the local and state level.

Due in part to his great accomplishments at the high school, on June 18, 2012 the Manor ISD Board of Trustees named Brackmeyer as the interim superintendent of schools prior to naming him as the lone finalist on December 18, 2012.
