Mr. Alex Horton
Hello, Ann Richards STEAM Academy family. I am proud to say that I am a true Texan. I was born in Waco, raised in Houston, and have lived in the DFW area for the past 20 years. I graduated with my bachelor's degree at Southwestern Adventist University. I received my Master's in Education Leadership at the University of North Texas. I had the privilege of marrying the love of my life, Dr. Rhea Horton, and we have a handsome little boy named Austin Horton. I started my career in education at Duncanville High School, and I am excited to continue my career at Ann Richards STEAM Academy.
I believe that a leader is a visionary that is able to effectively communicate his or her goal, create systems to support reaching the goal, and motivates others to achieve that goal. True leaders accomplish these tasks through building relationships, being adaptable, empowering their team, and holding the team accountable. As a leader at Ann Richards STEAM Academy, I strive to live by these characteristics while progressing towards the goal of positively impacting student achievement.
