Finally a Superintendent: Now What? What Graduate School Didn't Cover--Dealing with Fires, Angry Parents and Mountain Lions Simultaneously
Schultz, Bob
School Administrator, v62 n6 p10 Jun 2005
In this article, the author first discusses what he did in preparation for the superintendency. He was a teacher for 16 years and an administrator for 10 more. He completed the California School Leadership Academy, the state's two-tier administrative training program, and the Superintendents Academy put on by the Association of California School Administrators and then served another six years as an assistant superintendent. The author then discusses the first few months of his job as a superintentant. Near the end of the article, he summarizes his theory on what being a superintendant is. He states "Maybe a good superintendent is simply a good teacher with a larger class, a few more parents and a shorter summer."
