Temple High School

Skip to main content


My name is Stephen "Keith" Parker and this will be my 7th year teaching Criminal Justice and Forensic Science at Temple High School and my 12th year of teaching. Before coming to Temple I taught 7th-9th grade science at Lamesa High School and Middle School, and Lorenzo High School and Middle School (where I also coached girls, basketball, track, and cross-county). Before starting my teaching career I spent 10 years in the military. Of those 10 years I spent 2 years in the Army National Guard as a driver and gunner on the M1-A1 and M1-A2 Abrams Tanks, and 8 years in the Navy (full time) as a Sonar Technician and a Master at Arms on the U.S.S. Devastator and at Naval Air Station (NAS) Whidbey Island, WA. While at NAS Whidbey I worked with Homeland Defense on several different projects. During my time in the military I was able to complete my Bachelors of Art in Criminal Justice from Chapman University in Orange, Ca. (2005). Once I left the military I have continued my education completing my Masters in Education from Wayland Baptist University in Lubbock, Tx. with the emphasis on Administration (2009) and my Doctorate in Leadership in Educational Administration from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor in Belton, Tx., with a concentrate in K-12 education (2015). I am currently working on a Master of Science in Criminal Justice through Lamar University with an estimated graduation date of May of 2018.
