Garretson, Stephen


My name is Stephen Garretson and I am starting my 27th year in education. I am proud to be serving as the Assistant Principal at Cox Elementary for the third year. I have taught a wide range of grade levels and subjects over my 27 years. 

I believe that building relationships with students, staff, and families is critical to helping students succeed. This means working with all stakeholders to ensure your child's academic, social, and emotional needs are being met. 

I received my Bachelor's degree from East Texas State University. I have a Master's degree in Early Childhood from Texas A&M-Commerce, and a PhD in Child Development from Texas Woman's University.  I then added my certification for Administration from The University of North Texas.
