Why are you passionate about your role at Questeq?
I find great pleasure and satisfaction in working with school leaders to find solutions. I value the mentoring and guidance others provided me as a superintendent to ensure that the students I served received the best possible education, utilizing the most effective, research-proven instructional strategies, in the most cost-conscious and efficient manner possible. One of the most influential pieces of guidance I received as a superintendent involved engaging Questeq in the Educational Technology Management process. It was, quite literally, a game-changer for our staff and students. I want to engage other school leaders in discussions that lead them to make those type of game changing decisions.
What would you be doing if you weren't working at Questeq?
Spending time with my grandchildren and traveling the country in our RV.
What is one thing someone would be surprised to learn about you?
I’m in the middle of my “bucket list” goal of attending a game at every Major League Baseball park. I’m halfway there!
Words to live by
The most courageous act of leadership is not fighting your enemies…it’s convincing your friends it is time to change.
