Leslie Riddell

Principal

Mr. Riddell has been the principal at Jo Kelly School for the past four years and counts it a true blessing. He feels that each step along the path he chose has taken him through some wonderful times and places. He has taught Kindergarten, 1st and 3rd grades, worked as an Instructional Specialist and was an Assistant Principal with FWISD. These experiences has made the last twenty-seven years with FWISD something to cherish.

" I consider myself to be one of the luckiest people around. I have had the opportunity to work with the Jo Kelly Stars, the South Hills Wildcats, the Benbrook Bulldogs, the Rufino Mendoza Trojans and the Luella Merrett Super Bees. "
