Mrs. Evelyn Joseph

My name is Evelyn Joseph and I am the Military Liaison for Maude Moore Wood Elementary (MMWE). One of my greatest accomplishments was supporting my husband who is now a retired veteran of the US Army. Together, we raised four amazing children. Their journeys took them to six military bases, through five deployments, multiple schools, states, towns, and cities during my husband twenty years of service. These unique experiences, shared only by a selected few, are why I am so motivated to create and maintain a school environment designed to support military-connected students and their family members. 

Maude Moore Wood Elementary takes such pride and honor in welcoming and supporting military- students and family members. In addition to the many services we offer all students, MMW has a Military and Family Life Counselors (MFLC), who is on campus daily, military socials to welcome all new military students, weekly lunch groups for military students, and student ambassadors who enthusiastically supports new military student as they adjust to our campus. In short, Maude Moore Wood Elementary is here to support those who serve our country.

Welcome to the Killeen Independent School District family and welcome to Maude Moore Wood Elem. (Warrior Nation).
