Richard Paz

Hello and Welcome! I am Richard Paz. This is my third year at River Horse Academy and at the DAEP.  I am the Special Programs and Inclusion Teacher. I have been an educator for 18 years in various teaching positions. I lived in Houston for 22 years before deciding to make the Pflugerville area my home. Before coming to teaching, I was in management. I earned my bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Texas A&M-Corpus Christi and my master’s in Educational Administration from Concordia University-Austin.

I am married and have an amazing wife. Our family includes two awesome grown kids and a rescue dog. My wife recently retired from teaching and we enjoy spending family time together and taking road trips as often as we can. I am excited and looking forward to another great year at River Horse and at the DAEP!

Please ask for help, work hard, keep up with the work and you will do great!
