• Christel Applon, Assistant Principal

    Greetings! My name is Christel Applon. I am immensely grateful for the opportunity to serve as Assistant Principal as R.F. Patterson this school year. I started my educational career about 21 years ago. In the course of that time, I have served as a teacher in Arlington ISD, an educational consultant at ESC XVIII, and as an administrator in Midland ISD.

    Most recently, my family and I have relocated back to the DFW area from West Texas! I’ve been married to my wonderful husband for 13 years, and from our union, I have a handsome 4-year-old son and two beautiful bonus daughters.

    My passion and hope for all students are that they learn the essential skills that will carry them through their educational journey and beyond. I am thrilled to join the Wildcat community and I cannot wait to experience the joy that will come from the many things we will accomplish together!
