At KIPP Truth Elementary School, we believe that college readiness begins in kindergarten. Our academic program supports KIPPsters in developing and practicing the intellectual habits and academic skills that will prepare them for a life that they choose. We deeply invest in social-emotional learning and character education, as we know that a physically and emotionally safe and nurturing environment is critical to the well-being and growth of every child. We strive to equip our KIPPsters with the mindsets, knowledge, skills, and habits that will lead to a life of choice and empowerment so they can reach their goals and strengthen our community.

We know that school should be both rigorous and joyful! Through stimulating, individualized, and creative instruction, our students will fall in love with learning. Our school offers a robust specials program, and we have a two-to-one technology ratio that allows every child to engage with targeted blended learning each day.

DeMesha Webster

School Leader

“Knowledge is power. Information is liberating. Education is the premise of progress, in every society, in every family.” ~ Kofi Annan

DeMesha Webster was born in Dover, Delaware, but her roots lie in Monroe, Louisiana. In 2001, she relocated to Dallas, Texas, to pursue her dreams of continuing her education. After eight years as a Texas resident, she graduated with a Bachelor in Interdisciplinary Studies from Texas Woman's University. Shortly after graduation, she began her career as an educator in the Irving Independent School District, and after her 3rd year of teaching, she was named Teacher of the Year. At the same time, she was awarded a scholarship to earn her Master's in Educational Leadership at Southern Methodist University and continued her education. With Irving ISD, her leadership titles included grade-level chairperson, administrative liaison, and academic interventionist.

In 2019, after 13 years of serving the Irving community, DeMesha synced her heartbeat with KIPP Texas, where she was an assistant principal of instruction at KIPP Pleasant Grove Primary and an assistant principal of special populations and literacy at KIPP Truth Academy. Throughout her third year with KIPP Texas, she participated in the Striving School Leader Program and is excited to begin her first year as a school leader at KIPP Truth Elementary.

Outside of serving BIG and Little KIPPsters, Mrs. Webster enjoys traveling, cooking, and spending time with her husband and four daughters.
