Shaping values of next-gen superintendents

  As we enjoy summer and start to prepare for the upcoming school year, we take a moment to reflect on our three-part series featuring the exceptional representatives from the North Carolina School Superintendent Association (NCSSA). In previous interviews, we learned about the NCSSA from Executive Director Jack Hoke - read more - as well as explored the features and benefits of the Aspiring Superintendent Program with graduate, Dr. Eisa Cox. Read her story here. In this latest installment, we focus on Dr. Rob Jackson, who serves as a mentor for aspiring superintendents and also shares his experiences with the Next Generation Superintendent Development Program. We encourage you to take a moment to delve into each one of these stories. Please enjoy your e-Update. Tweet us @NCSTEM with any questions or feedback.
