Longview ISD is announcing some key leadership changes within two of our elementary school campuses. 

Mrs. Nikita Mumphrey, principal of Bramlette STEAM Academy, has tendered her resignation after fourteen years of dedicated service. Mumphrey, who has been at the helm of Bramlette for eight years, previously contributed as an administrator and classroom teacher for six years. 

The district expresses its gratitude for her commitment to education and wishes her well in her future endeavors.

East Texas Advanced Academies is pleased to announce that Mrs. Julie Hope, former principal of Bailey Elementary, is transitioning to Bramlette STEAM Academy, bringing her wealth of experience from nine years as a principal and sixteen years as an administrator and classroom teacher. 

Dr. Brian Ziemer, ETAA CEO, said Mrs. Hope's leadership will undoubtedly contribute to the continued success of Bramlette. 

“Mrs. Hope’s reputation for loving students and staff makes her exactly the right leader for Bramlette, and we look forward to working with her,” he said.

In a strategic move to support the launch of a new dual-language program at Bailey Elementary, Longview ISD is pleased to welcome Mrs. Sue Wilson out of retirement. Wilson, who previously served as the principal at Hudson PEP Elementary for 18 years, and boasts 46 years of experience as an administrator and classroom teacher, will step in as interim principal at Bailey.

"Of course, we are thrilled to welcome Mrs. Sue Wilson back into the district and have every confidence that she will provide excellent leadership at Bailey in the interim," said Dr. James Wilcox, Superintendent of Schools. 

Longview ISD is committed to providing the best educational experience for its students. These leadership changes reflect the district's dedication to ensuring a smooth transition and continued excellence in education.
