Meet Clint Glaesmann, Principal of Castleman Creek

Thank you to our many local Waco area sponsors included in this guide.

Clint Glaesmann is the principal of Castleman Creek Professional Development School. He was inspired to pursue this career throughout his life, specifically by the family of educators he comes from. Two key teachers in his life also instilled in him the desire to want to change students’ lives the way they changed his, showing him he was an important individual and not just a number in a classroom. Clint references a quote that changed his perspective, “As a teacher, your influence is limited to the size of your classroom, but as a teacher of teachers, your influence is limitless.” This led him to pursue the job of principal.

He describes teaching as a profession that allows all other professions to exist, and school as a place where magic is happening and lives are being transformed. Every day he is able to connect with kids and push them to do and achieve more than they ever thought possible. It is hard work, but there is not a day that goes by where Clint does not feel fulfilled by the work he does. His wife Joy and their two young children are at the center of his life.


He extends this prioritization of his family into his work as an administrator, stressing to his staff that they should prioritize their family over their work. He works hard to support his teachers in being present for the big moments in their lives and their kids’ lives, saying that they should not have to sacrifice witnessing those moments because they chose education as a career. He holds himself to that standard as well, and it helps him to maintain a healthy work-life balance. His favorite date nights with his wife are when they are able to try new things, specifically when traveling. Clint values spontaneous adventures, and is a certified scuba diver, making sure to make time in his life to pursue personal goals and hobbies. The Glaesmann home is filled with laughter, smiles, play, and dance, and they consider themselves rich, in love and support. He works each day to spread this wealth to each person he comes across in his day-to-day life, whether it be at home or in the classroom.

We're so grateful for the great work Mr. Glaesmann is doing for the school district!
