My name is Marcus Camp and I am very happy to have joined the White Oak ISD family as the Assistant Principal on both the Primary and Intermediate campuses and look forward to assisting in the education of the children and future of White Oak. I am coming to White Oak from New Diana ISD where I spent the last 16 years of my 21 year career teaching math as well as coaching, serving as the assistant athletic director, interim athletic director, assistant head football, head powerlifting, head track and head tennis coach. Prior to New Diana I taught and coached at Gladewater Middle School after teaching 5th grade at East Lincoln Elementary in Tullahoma, TN for one year to begin my career.
My education began in Daingerfield where I attended from K-12, graduating in 1989 as a proud Tiger. I completed my undergraduate studies at East Texas State University, now Texas A&M Commerce, in 1995 where I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies and received my teaching certificate. I furthered my education by earning my Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership at The University of Texas at Tyler in the summer of 2016.
I am blessed to not only be part of a great school family, but a personal one as well. My wife Kellie is a 1st grade teacher at Hudson PEP Elementary in Longview. Between us, we have 4 children with the oldest, her daughter, Kaytlin who is attending Kilgore college pursuing a career in education. My son, Jarrett will be a junior at Longview High School in the International Baccalaureate program. Kellie’s other daughter, Macie, will be a junior at New Diana High School and my daughter, Rylee (12) will be in the 7th grade in the GT Program at Foster Middle School in Longview.
I look forward to a wonderful year and thank you for the opportunity to help ensure the success of all students at White Oak Primary/Intermediate.
