Anderson High School Administrators



Mr. Brian Lancaster

Brian Lancaster

Brian Lancaster grew up mostly in Colorado Springs, and attended Colorado State University in Fort Collins, CO.  He began college as an Electrical Engineering major with an Air Force ROTC scholarship, but struggled with the initial thought: "Wait a minute, I don't feel passionate about this, so why am I doing it?"  After that, he resigned from the Air Force ROTC program and switched to being an English Education major, graduating in 2009.  He worked for three years as an English specialist at GOAL Academy, an online charter school in Colorado.  He then moved to Austin to be closer to his brother and nieces, and worked for two years at John P. Ojeda Middle School in Del Valle ISD, and then for four years at W. Charles Akins High School in Austin ISD.  In 2019, he graduated with a Master of Education in Educational Leadership from Texas State University, and was hired to be an assistant principal at LC Anderson High School in the summer of 2019.  In his spare time, he enjoys playing trombone with Minor Mishap Marching Band, helping organize the Honk!TX music festival, exploring Austin with his wife Ali, and playing computer games.
