Eric Pacheco, Principal
It is a pleasure to serve as the principal of the Dillard Center. The 2020-2021 school year will by my seventh year with Allen ISD. Prior to coming to Allen I worked in Richardson ISD as a classroom teacher and a campus administrator at both the junior high and high school levels.
I am originally from Flint, Michigan but have lived in a variety of interesting places including a suburb of Detroit, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Segovia, Spain, and Guadalajara, Mexico. However, I am very happy to be living and raising my two children right here in North Texas. I am active in my church and like to unwind by riding my motorcycle and wood working projects.
I received my Bachelor of Arts in Education from Saginaw Valley State University, my Master of Education at UT Arlington, and have completed work toward my doctoral studies at the University of North Texas.
Working with the students and staff of the Dillard Center has proven to be both challenging and rewarding and I expect this year to be no different as we strive to equip students with the knowledge and skills they need to be successful in their academic and social lives.
