Committed to Excellence
David Stelmazewski became superintendent of Boerne Independent School District on December 1, 2011. A devoted educator with more than 35 years of experience in public schools, Mr. Stelmazewski says he finds his professional motivation in the accomplishments of the district's students.
“I’m so proud of the students of Boerne schools and their determination to excel in the classroom and across the spectrum of extracurricular activities,” Mr. Stelmazewski says. “Our students inspire our faculty and staff, leading us all to the levels of excellence in education that make this school district a true asset in our extraordinarily supportive community.”
Mr. Stelmazewski arrived in Boerne in 2008, serving as the first principal of the newly opened Boerne-Samuel V. Champion High School. Under his leadership, Boerne-Champion quickly rose among the state’s leading academic campuses; the school attained Exemplary status in 2009, 2010 and 2011.
Excellence in the classroom was mirrored by solid results in extracurricular activities, with Boerne-Champion being awarded the UIL’s 2010-11 Lone Star Cup for the best extracurricular program among Texas’ 4A high schools. Each year during Mr. Stelmazewski’s tenure as principal, Boerne-Champion’s athletic program received the Dan Cook Cup, signifying all-around excellence among San Antonio-area high schools.
Prior to his service in Boerne, Mr. Stelmazewski served as principal of Dillard McCollum High School in San Antonio’s Harlandale ISD for seven years. The school was recognized in 2006 as one of the “Best Public Schools in Texas” for the growth in test scores and improvement in school climate by the National Center for Education Accountability. His work at McCollum was acknowledged in 2008 when he was named Outstanding Principal for Region 20 by the Texas Association of Secondary School Principals.
Mr. Stelmazewski served as principal of Kingsborough Middle School in the Harlandale ISD, 1998-2001. Under his leadership, Kingsborough became the first San Antonio school outside the north side of the city to earn an Exemplary rating from the state. Kingsborough also achieved the nationally prestigious rating as a U. S. Department of Education Blue Ribbon School.
Serving in San Antonio’s Northside ISD, Mr. Stelmazewski was assistant principal at Tom C. Clark High School and teacher and varsity basketball coach at John Jay High School. At Jay, he built a state championship-caliber program. Mr. Stelmazewski’s career in public education began in 1974 at Woodlawn High School in Woodlawn, Illinois, where he served as teacher, coach and athletic director.
Mr. Stelmazewski’s wife, Kirby Jameson, is assistant athletic director with Northside ISD. He has two grown children and two grandchildren.
