Principal:  Dr. Danielle Riddick

Dear Lister Lions Community,

It is my honor to have served at the amazing Vernal Lister Elementary since June 2020! One of my core beliefs is that each of our children possesses a specific purpose and life’s mission. Our school works to provide engaging learning that inspires and challenges all students. Together, we will ensure students have opportunities to grow, learn and reach their full potential. 

Serving in Texas public schools since 2010 has afforded me many opportunities to work with amazing students and effective, passionate teachers. I have served as a classroom teacher, reading specialist, assistant principal, and principal. I earned a Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies degree from the University of Texas at El Paso,  Master of Education from the University of North Texas and a Doctorate in Education from Southern Methodist University. 

Our goal is to consistently take concrete steps to ensure our students receive exactly what they need to grow as lifelong learners. Partner with us as we move forward in doing what is best for every student, every day. Let’s do everything we can to carry out Garland ISD’s vision of driving excellence one student at a time. Once again, it is my pleasure and a gift to serve as the Lister Lion’s principal.

To a bright future,

Dr. Danielle Riddick

Assistant Principal: Dr. Stephanie Humble

Hello Lister Lion Community! It is an honor to serve as your assistant principal. I have a strong passion to educate young minds and help them grow into well-rounded, responsible, and successful adults. My greatest desire is to stretch teachers and students to be their best selves, provide a safe space, while developing strong, lasting relationships with them. I have been privileged to serve students in grades Kindergarten, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 7th, having taught all subjects with a mathematics specialty. I hold a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies and Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction both from Abilene Christian University as well as a Doctorate in Education from Argosy University- Dallas. I am looking forward to the amazing things that will take place this school year. We ask you to partner with us as we grow and develop lifelong learners who will envelop excellence in all they do. Again, I look forward to serving you as Lister’s Lion assistant principal.

Warm Regards,

Dr. Stephanie Humble
