Although the barriers that women face in the field of secondary education administration have been examined in detail, less research exists on the experiences of women holding administrative licenses but who do not work in the field. This qualitative study examined the experiences and choices of six women working in public schools that possess administrative licenses but do not work as administrators. This study required these women to participate in two semi-structured interviews in order to reconstruct their experiences. The data collected resulted in the emergence of four key themes: (1) Specificity of Interests, (2) Personal and Vocational Self-concept, (3) Professional Influences, and (4) Role Balance. The findings from this study shed light on the experiences and perceptions of this unique population, and may assist public school systems in implementing change at the district level.
