Principal's Bio

Meet the Principal

Image for   Meet the Principal

My name is Stephanie Brown Richey and I am honored to serve as the principal at Greensboro Elementary School.  I hold a Master's degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education from the University of West Alabama, as well as Educational Administrator certification from the University of Alabama.  I began my teaching career with the Tuscaloosa County School System, where I taught 4th and 5th grade at Englewood Elementary School before becoming principal at Greensboro Elementary in June 2000.

I have been principal at Greensboro Elementary School for sixteen years and I love my job! I have extremely high expectations for myself and my staff, and fully believe that it is our responsibility to help every child reach his/her fullest potential.  It is my belief that every child should enjoy coming to elementary school every day because they are actively engaged in their learning by teachers who value and inspire them. 

My favorite quote is by Franklin D. Roosevelt, which says, "We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build the youth for the future."
