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.
