Sampson, Pauline M.
Leadership and Research in Education, v4 spec iss p114-126 2017-2018
This paper describes a qualitative research study of the experiences of Texas female superintendents with longevity. Specifically, five superintendents with tenure of at least six years in one school district were interviewed to hear their voices. Findings show that a strong working relationship with their boards, a solid connection with their communities, a commitment and passion for the position, as well as a sense of achievement were factors in their longevity.
