Principal Doug Planey

My name is Doug Planey.   I am a product of Richardson ISD, having graduated from Berkner High school in 1986. After graduating from the University of Texas at Austin, I started my career as a teacher and coach at Liberty Junior High in 1991.  After 12 years in the classroom, I spent the next several years as an assistant
principal in the Lake Highlands Learning Community.  In 2013, I was offered the opportunity to lead Liberty Junior High as principal.  After our students and staff achieved great success at Liberty Junior High, I joined the Teaching and Learning Department as Math Director.  I have spent my entire career, 30 years, in this wonderful school district and look forward to many more years serving students. 

When I am not working, I love to spend time with my family and garden.  I am the proud father of two wonderful daughters, Malane and Makenna.  Malane will be starting seventh grade next year and Makenna will begin fifth
grade.  My beautiful wife Misty spent 25 years in education and most recently was a counselor at North. 

My goal is to be a servant leader and I look forward to continuing to build strong relationships with students,  staff, families and the entire Pearce Learning Community.  Together, we will work to make sure that each  student at North has the opportunity to connect, learn, grow and succeed!
