Leander ISD is pleased to announce Kimberly Waltmon as the newest area superintendent.

“Ms. Waltmon’s four years of leading the Special Programs and Services Department as Executive Director then Assistant Superintendent, as well as her experience as a principal at the elementary and middle school levels, gives her an excellent breadth of knowledge to draw upon in coaching principals,” Superintendent Bruce Gearing, Ed.D., said. “Kimberly has served her entire career in LISD, and I look forward to seeing her walk alongside principals as she guides them in helping students prepare themselves for a future of limitless possibilities.”

Waltmon is an established district educator and leader who began her career in education as a special education teacher at Giddens Elementary nearly two decades ago. In the years since, she has served as an assistant principal at Stiles Middle School, principal of Parkside Elementary School and principal of Canyon Ridge Middle School. In 2020, Waltmon became the executive director of LISD’s Special Programs and Services Department, and in 2023, she transitioned into the role of assistant superintendent, keeping Special Programs and Services while adding oversight of State and Federal Programs.

“I am honored to join the School Leadership team. Leander ISD has exceptional educators and a strong commitment to student success,” Waltmon said. “I am excited to collaborate with our outstanding schools and campus leaders to support our district’s vision.”

Waltmon completed her Bachelor of Science in interdisciplinary studies and Master of Education in educational leadership at Texas State University. She is currently in the Cooperative Superintendency Program at the University of Texas at Austin which will lead to a Doctor of Education in educational leadership.  She expects to complete the program in December 2024. 

Waltmon will replace Area Superintendent Christine Simpson, who will be retiring at the end of this school year.
