School Administrator, v68 n10 p21-27 Nov 2011
The concluding year of a lengthy career in school administration carries its share of emotional highs and lows. For those leaving the superintendency, it's also an opportunity to reflect on professional accomplishments, the chance to recount one's tangible impact on the lives of hundreds of fellow educators and thousands of school-age children over the years. This article presents the essays of four superintendents who had announced that 2010-2011 would be their final year of service before retirement. Each essay contains a reflection of how she or he spent the final year in public education.
