From Longview Independent School District:

LONGVIEW, TX - A veteran principal and nationally renowned education consultant has been named principal at Johnston-McQueen Elementary School, and the long-time principal at Judson Middle School will take over the district’s Career and Technology Education program.

Dennis Mitchell, a former math teacher and principal, and Brian Kasper, who’s been with Longview ISD since 1988, began their new charges on Monday.

Mitchell for the past 12 years has owned and operated IGN Behavior Solutions, a consulting firm known nationally for its program ‘The Do’s & Don’ts of Discipline.’ He has worked with Longview ISD educators for eight of those years. Prior to becoming a teacher and principal, Mitchell served for six years as a member of the U.S. Army’s 101st Airborne division.

Kasper began working with the district as a Longview High School agriculture teacher. He was the district’s 1998-99 Secondary Teacher of the Year just before becoming Judson’s assistant principal in 2000. He was named principal there in 2003.

“We believe that (Mitchell) is an excellent fit at Johnston-McQueen and we expect big things from him,” Superintendent Dr. James E. Wilcox said. “As for our CTE program – it’s the envy of other districts near and far. Brian (Kasper) knows the program and he’s an outstanding leader.”
