    My name is Riki Underwood and I am excited to be the Assistant Principal at Maypearl Middle School!!

    I attended Texas Tech University, earning a Bachelor of Science in 2003 and a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from Dallas Baptist University in 2018.  My certifications include Math 4-8, 8-12 Mathematics, and EC-12 Principal as an Instructional Leader.

    I began my teaching career in 2004 as a mathematics teacher in Ijamsiville, MD at Windsor Knolls Middle School, teaching 7th and 8th grade math. Then I moved to Clyde, TX and coached girls athletics and taught 7th and 8th grade math for 2 years. The last 15 years I have spent in Midlothian working at Walnut Grove Middle School, teaching 8th grade math and Algebra. I have also worked as the 504 Coordinator and Accelerated Instruction Specialist, helping teachers and students fill the gaps.

    My husband, Rob and I have been married for 19 years and have 2 amazing kids! Jackson is a student at Maypearl High School and my daughter Alyssa is at Maypearl Middle School. 

    I am looking so forward to a great year here at Maypearl Middle School!!
