DARTMOUTH ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
RICHARDSON INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT
Where all students connect, learn, grow and succeed
August 19, 2019
Dear Dartmouth Families,
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! My name is Stacey Marx, and I am excited to embark on my third year here at Dartmouth Elementary. I am a proud product of RISD, having attended Springridge, Liberty and Berkner High School. I attended Baylor University where I studied Elementary Education, and Texas Woman’s University for my masters in Educational Administration. I began my teaching career at O. Henry Elementary in RISD as a 4th grade teacher. I also taught and led as an assistant principal in Lewisville ISD and Fayetteville, Arkansas. I have enjoyed being back “home” in RISD the past five years. My husband and I are raising our two children here in the district as well.
Our assistant principal is Ron Crawford. He joined our staff last spring, and we are looking forward to continuing to have him as a part of our administrative team. Mr. Crawford previously taught in RISD for 15 years, at both Carolyn Bukair and White Rock Elementary. In 2016 he was reconized as a STARS Teacher of the Year for RISD. He received his undergraduate from Texas Tech Universiy and his Masters from Lamar University. Mr. Crawford and his wife have five children; 7th grade, 3rd grade, 1st grade, and two preschoolers.
This year I am excited for our campus to continue our STEM work! Our staff is gearing up for incorporating the 4Cs of STEM (Communication, Collaboration, Creativity, and Critial Thinking) into their lessons. We will continue to provide students the opportunities to explore STEM through field trips, clubs, special events, and curriculum connections.
