Russell J Lopez

Assistant Principal

I am proudly serving in my third year as an Administrator at Lake Dallas High School.  Prior to joining the Lake Dallas team I worked in High Education at the University of North Texas for 6 years followed by 6 years at the Middle School level in Denton ISD.  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 I know the challenges that our teachers face on a daily basis.  I am married to the most amazing and beautiful wife in the whole world and the Lord has bless us with two of the sweetest and most beautiful little girls that He has ever made. 

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 with hard work.

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!!
