Mr. Richard Paul's Bio
I am honored to be a part of the BCHS family and look forward to working with each and every one of you this year. I would also like to take a moment to introduce myself and provide a little background information in hopes of getting to know each of you a little better.
I have been happily married for 16 years (17 on August 31) to my wife Cindy. She is a native of Baldwin County and a BCHS Alum c/o 1997. We have two wonderful children, Abbi and Thomas. Abbi is 12 and will be moving up to BMMS this year and will be dancing as a Tiger Paw! Thomas is 7 and attends Stapleton Elementary and moving into the 2nd grade. We have lived in Stapleton since moving back in 2004.
I have worked for Baldwin County schools for the last 12 years. I started my career as a 5th/6th grade math and science teacher at Rosinton Elementary School in the Central Baldwin Feeder pattern. I was there 9 years before moving into administration for the last 3 years at Pine Grove Elementary, where I served as Assistant Principal.
Prior to education, I have worked in law enforcement and retail business management. I received a B.S. in Wildlife Science from Auburn University in 2002 (WAR EAGLE!) and upon graduating went to work for the Georgia Department of Natural Resources as a Conservation Ranger (game warden). Leaving there, I moved to Baldwin County in 2004 to live in Stapleton and help my father open and manage an Ace Hardware retail store in Mobile. During that time, I went back to school for education. I hold a Masters of Education in Secondary Science and completed the certificate program for Instructional Leadership from the University of South Alabama. I am a certified eMINTS instructor with Baldwin County and a big supporter of collaborative learning.
Working in the educational setting is my calling and mission field. I am so excited to be a part of BCHS and look forward to an outstanding year.
