I became an educator in 2007, and during that time I have served as a Biology and Aquatic Science teacher, Austin ISD Science Teacher Mentor, and a Science Department Chair. I have spent the last three years of my career as the Akins HS New Tech Academy Coordinator. I believe that my experience as an educator has taught me the value of equitable education for all students and through my various leadership roles I have learned tools and lessons to create and guide both students and teachers in creating an environment and culture where all education endeavors are treated as a means to discover the world around them.


As a leader in the world of education, it is up to me to hold true to my philosophy of education. I believe that every student should be offered a quality education no matter race or social-economic status. I would want to lead a campus or district in analyzing ways to create a curriculum that is designed for all students. Educational experiences where all stakeholders who have a hand with designing the education system must keep the students and their futures at the forefront of their minds. Parents must be kept in the loop and educated on how to help their students be successful. When all parties work collaboratively, then a student will be given the tools to be successful in both higher learning and career aspirations.

David Lopez’s career of service began with the Navy during Desert Storm, transitioned into a 22-year tenure as a police officer where he held ranks as an SRO, Detective, Sergeant, and Chief of Police. While serving as a Sergeant, David recognized the most effective way to keep youth out of prison was to influence in the classroom. With that in mind, David began his 18-year career in education starting at Austin Akins High School. After 10 years, he transitioned into administration within Martin Middle School, Ojeda Middle School, and Del Valle High School where he served as an Assistant Principal. Currently, David is proudly serving Austin LBJ High School as an Assistant Principal. Outside of the classroom, David serves Project MALES within the University of Texas at Austin’s Division of Diversity and Community Engagement. David earned his BSCJ and Masters's degrees both from Texas State University and is working on his Doctorate of Education from Abilene Christian University. During his free time, David enjoys spending time with his children, reading biographies, cheering on the Dallas Cowboys, and playing golf.

It is with great enthusiasm that I start this year with LBJ Early College High School as an assistant principal. Along with the excitement, I am honored to be a part of the LBJ High School community, and I realize the great responsibility that I must inspire, empower, and influence our youth, as well as the opportunity to positively impact the families, staff, and communities in support of our students. I strongly believe that students grow and achieve more when they are challenged and surrounded by involved and compassionate adults, both within and outside the walls of a school. 

I bring to LBJ ECHS many years of experience as an educator. I have served in positions as a High School Teacher of Business Education, CTE Department Chair, District CTE Specialist, DECA Sponsor, Head Football Coach, Head Wrestling Coach, and Robotics sponsor. No matter the role within education, I always return to my core values including the idea that education is a social right-- not a privilege. Education is the great equalizer, an instrument to change the world. It is with the above mentioned that I go forward to make a positive impact towards equity and excellence in our schools so our students will make their own positive and lasting impact in our world.
