LTISD Superintendent Dr. Brad Lancaster is pleased to announce he has selected Mr. Lester Wolff as the new Principal for Lake Travis Middle School. Mr. Wolff will begin his duties as Principal immediately. On February 20, 2019, Mr. Wolff was asked to serve as the interim Principal at LTMS for the duration of the spring semester. Prior to that role, he served as interim Principal for West Cypress Hills Elementary for approximately seven weeks and served last year in the role of interim Assistant Principal at Hudson Bend Middle School for the spring 2018 semester.
Mr. Wolff is an accomplished professional who possesses more than 33 years experience in public education. He is a former classroom teacher, assistant principal, principal, administrator and assistant superintendent having served in the Arlington and Eanes school districts. Mr. Wolff earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education from Buena Vista University in Storm Lake, Iowa and a Master of Education degree in Educational Administration from the University of North Texas in Denton. He also holds mid-management and superintendent certification.
"We were fortunate to have received an impressive applicant pool for this vacancy," said Dr. Lancaster. "Mr. Wolff’s extensive wealth and breadth of experience will allow for a seamless transition into this permanent role at LTMS. Mr. Wolff has made very quick, strong and positive connections with students, parents, and staff in each of his roles with our district. Additionally, when I spoke with the LTMS staff earlier this month, they made their wishes extremely clear to me. Mr. Wolff had won their hearts and minds and it was obvious to me that they want him as their full-time Principal. Having worked with him and witnessed his efforts this past year, I agree wholeheartedly."
