Madisonville High School assistant principal Glenn Guderian will leave Madisonville CISD to take over as principal for grades 7-12 in Leon ISD for the 2019-2020 school year. Having served in a variety of positions over his career, this will mark Guderian’s first stint as a building principal.
Guderian noted a new challenge as the primary influence for taking on his new role.
“I have K-12 experience in pretty much every role except principal”, he said of his 33-year career. “This will mark a new challenge for me.”
Guderian’s career began in 1986, as a teacher and coach in Copperas Cove ISD, before coming to MCISD to serve in the same role. In the mid-1990s, Guderian left to serve as a counselor in North Zulch ISD for several years, before returning to MCISD as a counselor at Madisonville Elementary.
Since then, he has remained in MCISD, spending the last 15 years as an assistant principal at the junior high and high school levels. In all, Guderian has served 27 years in MCISD.
“I’ve had the pleasure of teaching and serving the children of many of my former students”, said Guderian, as he described leaving MCISD as bittersweet. “I’ve been here so long, the relationships with coworkers, students, and parents is what I will miss most.”
But Guderian is excited and motivated for his new position, and ready to get to work right away.
“Leon [ISD] is a good place with good schools”, he said. “Hopefully my experience will help them in whatever area they need.
“And hopefully form some of the same relationships I’ve formed here.”
