I started as a teacher. Entered the USAF and over a 30 year career commanded 2 Squadrons, 1 Group, was a Division CV, and a Unified Command J6. In otherwords I grew up using bleading edge technology.
Re entered education as a assistant superintendent in a very large district, became a deputy superintendent, and followed this by serving as a superintendent in 2 districts. In one of those districts we were then and now the only district to actually close the achievement gap. Our achievement was documented using Standarized Tests and was sustained for 4 years in a row.
