Dawson Middle School has named Stephen Langford as its new assistant principal.
Langford has worked in Carroll ISD for the past eight years and taught multiple subjects and coached at the Carroll High and Carroll Middle Schools. He replaces Mike Wyrick, who left to become the principal at Durham Intermediate School.
“I am looking forward to working with the great students and staff at Dawson,” Langford said.
Langford begins his new role July 30. He is an East Central (Ada, Okla.) University graduate and has a Masters of Education Administration in Educational Leadership from Texas A&M University in Commerce. He started his career at Colleyville Middle School in the Grapevine-Colleyville school district.
Carroll ISD has hired Lindsey Jacobson as the new English/Language Arts and Social Studies Coordinator for Grades 7-12. Jacobson previously taught English at Carroll High School and was an assistant soccer coach the past four years. She began her new role July 14.
Jacobson, a Carroll graduate, has 10 years of experience in public education and taught in Grapevine-Colleyville, Lewisville and Keller ISDs. She has Masters degree in Educational Leadership and Administration from the University of North Texas.
“As a Carroll graduate, a former teacher and coach, and now parent of a Carroll student, I have been and always will be a Dragon,” Jacobson said. “I have loved returning to my hometown to reinvest in the kids and the community that I grew up loving. I now have the opportunity to take that a step further by supporting and helping our teachers and administrators by communicating best practices in curriculum and instruction through English Language Arts and Social Studies.”
Jacobson has served on the district’s STAAR/EOC evaluation committee, the English/Language Arts district vertical team and been a leader in curriculum development.
