Commitment

Principal named for Castleman Creek

Dr. Clint Glaesmann, current CCE assistant principal, will replace Dr. Mandy Johnson as she transitions to Park Hill Elementary.

“Dr. Glaesmann is one-of-a-kind in his enthusiasm, energy, and communications,” said Dr. George Kazanas, Superintendent. “His thoughtful planning combined with his pension for creative events fosters fantastic campus morale for students, staff, and parents alike. I believe he will continue Dr. Johnson’s joyous philosophy while bringing forth new ideas and programs to progressively serve the CCE community.”

Dr. Johnson will be working on staffing and planning for the new campus while Dr. Glaesmann takes over lead administration for Castleman Creek. Dr. Johnson will remain housed at CCE to assist with the full student population on campus and she will transition to Park Hill in August along with several hundred CCE students.
