• Dear Maverick Family,

     I am so excited to lead Madison Crossing this coming school year and continue with the Maverick traditions. I have been in education for over twenty years and ten of those years I have spent in the Maverick Zone. I was blessed to work at Germantown Middle as a teacher, at Mannsdale as an assistant principal, and at Mannsdale Upper as the lead principal. I am even married to a Maverick. My husband, Coach Houghton, is a teacher at Germantown Middle and a football coach at Germantown High School.


    Coach Houghton and I have been married for thirty-four years and we have three amazing children; Haley, Chase, and Kelsey, and one son-in-law, AJ Antonescu. We are also proud pet owners of Bella our Airedale Terrier and Olive our cat.


    I am excited about adding Madison Crossing to my family. I look forward to getting to know each of you and your precious children.


    Dr. Debra Houghton

    Principal, Madison Crossing Elementary
