A Crusader for Early Literacy
Goldman, Jay P.
School Administrator, v61 n1 p43 Jan 2004
From the day he landed in the southeastern Washington community of Kennewick as district superintendent, Paul Rosier let it be known through his actions, as well as his words, that he intended to be the school district's instructional leader. Rosier is a big-picture guy who likes to spend time peering through small windows. In a masterful way of modeling what he believes, he has committed from the beginning of his tenure to visit every classroom in the district for 10 to 15 minutes every school year. That is upwards of 900 classroom visits, and last year he reached 96 percent of them. What is more, Rosier leaves each teacher a personalized note in his or her mailbox describing an instructional strategy that he observed. This brief article is a profile of the work of Paul Rosier.
