Lou Medina - Principal
As I begin my 34th year in education, all in Northside Independent School District, I am grateful and honored to serve as the principal at Stinson Middle School. My career in education started in 1987 at Pat Neff Middle School where I taught 6th, 7th, and 8th grade English. I then moved to Jack C. Jordan in 1994, where I taught 7th and 8th Grade English and also served as the English coordinator. In 2002, I opened Warren High School as the English coordinator and taught. In 2006, I became the Academic Dean at Warren High School and served as the Vice-Principal at Warren High School these last two years. As I continue to grow in my role as a principal, my vision is to ensure middle school students are provided with the resources and preparation for being successful in their high school years and beyond. Middle school teachers make a real difference in setting a pathway for student achievement, and I am so fortunate to be working with the finest middle school teachers and staff in Northside.

My name is Louis C. Villarreal, and I am very pleased to have the privilege of working with our students, parents, and community as the Vice-Principal of Stinson Middle School. I myself am a product of Northside Independent School District, having graduated from Business Careers High School as a part of the class of 1998. After graduating high school, I found my path toward education while attending college at the University of Texas at San Antonio. I received my Bachelors Degree in History in 2006, then followed with a Masters Degree of Education in Educational Leadership in 2011.

I am very proud to say that the entirety of my fourteen plus year career in education has been spent in Northside ISD. I started at Rayburn Middle School in the fall of 2006, and spent ten years there teaching 8th grade U.S. History and served as a department coordinator for seven of those years. At the start of the 2016 school year, I moved to Pease Middle School where I served as an Administrative Intern for one year. From Pease, I moved to Jordan Middle School in 2017, where I was the Assistant Principal for two school years. Now I continue my journey as the Vice-Principal of Stinson Middle School.

At each of my stops along my career path, and in every day, I am reminded of how rewarding each of my jobs has been. The opportunity to work with students and see real growth in them, which ultimately leads to success in the classroom, is among the most exhilarating things I can imagine. Though working in middle school, we only have three brief years with students, I believe them to be the most important time in a students formative years. I believe that it is our duty to challenge students to realize their full potential, and help them strive to be the best they possibly can be.
Academic Dean, Rick Lane
Rick Lane - Academic Dean
I started my career in California as a high school teacher. I taught 9th and 12th grade English, theatre, student leadership, and peer mediation. After a few years of teaching, I helped open a new high school as the Dean of Student Activities.

During the summer of 2004, my wife and I decided to move to Texas. I was hired at Luna Middle School and absolutely fell in love with teaching middle school students! At Luna, I taught 6th grade English for two years before I moved into the role of GT Specialist. As the GT Specialist, I taught 6th, 7th and 8th grade GT students creative thinking, leadership skills, as well as the contents of reading and history/social studies. Prior to my appointment to my current role as Academic Dean at Stinson Middle School, I served as the Social Studies Department Coordinator in addition to my role as the GT Specialist.
