Mr. Stephen Richardson

I have been involved in education for nearly 10 years. I hold a Bachelor of Arts Degree in History from The University of North Texas and a Master’s Degree in Educational Administration at Lamar University in Beaumont. I taught 7th grade History at Cross Timbers Middle School in Grapevine, TX for seven years and coached football, basketball, track, and volleyball. I became the assistant principal of the Cross Timbers Middle School in 2012. I’ve also has been involved with and chaired a number of committees throughout my career, serving in various coordinator roles, including Campus Testing Coordinator, 504 Coordinator, led technology initiatives, facilitated character education programs, and developed and implemented the Behavior RTI "5-Phase Intervention" for Grapevine Colleyville ISD.

I believe that all children can learn. I believe that with hard work and perseverance we can ensure all students are successful. Having a positive culture is the key to success as well as keeping the lines of communication open among staff, students, and parents. Teamwork is the ultimate way a school can be successful in reaching the goal of helping all children reach their full potential. I’m is a very visible and truly believe the best part of my job is seeing students in action when visiting the classrooms. I get to know every student and every student gets to know me. I’m looking forward to a great 2017-2018 school year!
