Russell J Lopez

Assistant Principal

I'm proud to be here at Lake Dallas after 6 years of experience at the Middle School level, and 6 years in of experience in High Education.  I value building relationships, strong moral character, kindness, respect, and a conviction to do the right thing.  I have worn many hats in education, including teacher, coach, team lead, and bus driver to name a few, and know the challenges that our teachers face on a daily basis.  I also understand the challenges our parents face each day, as a father of two beautiful little girls.  My philosophy is that 90% of edcuation, and life in general, can be mastered by treating others the right way, doing the right thing, and working hard.

Favorite quotes:

Do the right thing, and suffer the consequences.

A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives.  -Jackie Robinson

Hard work - pays off!!
