I am excited to begin my fifth year as a member of the West family, and I look forward to working with the wonderful Mustang students, parents,and teachers. This year will mark my 19th year in education. Prior to becoming an assistant principal I was a high school science teacher for 13 years where I taught IPC, Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. I received my Bachelor of Science degree from Houston Baptist University, my Master of Education and my Doctorate of Education through Lamar University. I have been married to my wife, Ruth Ann, for 17 years, and we have three amazing children, Reed (12), Emma (7), and Nick (5).
