The purpose of the research was to inform professional practice pertaining to the preparation of female administrators as future school superintendents. Twenty female superintendents in Texas were interviewed using a qualitative research approach. Strategies, career experiences and perception of barriers were identified using open-ended questions. Qualitative analysis provided insight into how current female superintendents navigated their career paths, as well as recommendations for how to advance career opportunities for future female administrators and assist more women into the superintendency.
