McKinney, Texas – McKinney ISD welcomes Hali Hunt and Shelly Spaulding to the human resources department, where they will serve as directors overseeing vital areas of operations under the direction of Chief Human Resources Officer Dr. Chad Teague.

“Our goal in human resources is to support all of our employees in all aspects of their profession, so they may better serve our students,” said Teague. “Ms. Spaulding’s energy and positive nature coupled with her working knowledge of all aspects of a campus along with Mr. Hunt’s HR experience as a director and knowledge of all of the technical aspects of human resources combines to establish a firm foundation of support for all of our employees.”

Hunt comes to MISD from Lake Worth ISD, where he has served as director of human resources and communications for the past two years. He brings a broad range of human resources experience over a 23 year career in both the private sector and the public school setting.

As human resources director, Hunt will oversee daily operations of MISD human resources that include but are not limited to T-TESS (Texas Teacher Evaluation and Support System) compliance, employee concerns, administrative trainings and working as liaison for campus administration.

Hunt began his career in 1997 as a human resources personnel manager with the U.S. Army. From 2001–2008, he worked in the private sector before coming to education in 2009 to serve as a fourth grade math and science teacher in Dallas ISD. In 2014, he joined the human resources department in DeSoto ISD and has made human resources his home since then, also serving in the human resources departments of Medina Valley ISD and Lake Worth ISD.

“Coming onboard with Mckinney ISD is one of the most amazing things to happen in my human resources career thus far and is equivalent to a ‘Home Coming Celebration’ for my family,” said Hunt. “Prior to moving away to San Antonio, I lived in McKinney, Texas. My wife and I fell in love with McKinney and only dreamed of moving back one day. Well, that day has come, and I look forward to providing support and leadership to the district. My goal is to help McKinney ISD continue to be recognized as a world class organization that supports the recruitment of outstanding employees, which will enhance the district’s vision for student achievement.”

Hunt holds a bachelor’s degree in business management and an MBA from Liberty University, and he is currently in the doctoral program for business management at Northcentral University.

Shelly Spaulding moves to the MISD Human Resources Department after five years as an assistant principal at McKinney High School. She brings 16 years of experience in education to her new role as human resources director.

Spaulding began her career in 2004 in Richardson ISD where she would serve as a middle school athletics coach, ELAR teacher and reading specialist over the next four years. She came to McKinney ISD in 2008 to join the staff at Cockrill Middle School and served as a teacher and athletics coach there in addition to serving as an instructional coach from 2014-2015. In 2015, she moved into campus administration as an assistant principal at McKinney High School, where she served students, parents and teachers as a house principal and oversaw the English, ESL, Journalism, ISM and AVID programs.

In her role as human resources director, Spaulding will oversee human resource management with first year teachers, mentors, student teachers and observers, and she’ll be responsible for employee social-emotional learning and employee recognitions.

“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to join the HR team in McKinney ISD,” said Spaulding. “I am looking forward to working with Dr. Teague and the HR team to provide support for our teachers, administrators and employees. McKinney ISD is an incredible place to work, with truly amazing educators, and I am grateful for the opportunity to continue to recruit excellent teachers, to support and mentor staff throughout their time in McKinney ISD and to collaborate with both central office and campus staff to continue our traditions and expectations for excellence.”

Spaulding holds a bachelor’s degree from Baylor University, a master’s degree in education administration from Lamar University, and she is currently a doctoral student at the University of North Texas.
