9 Inspirational Education-Leadership Panels (Videos)

| No comments

In 2013, Education Week embarked on an endeavor to find and highlight the best K-12 school district leaders in the country.

Through that work, we came across Tiffany Anderson, Dennis Creedon, and Valeria Silva and recognized them as Leaders To Learn From.

Tiffany Anderson is the superintendent of the Jennings School District in Jennings, Mo. Her specialty in Jennings—a majority African-American, low-income community next door to Ferguson—has been confronting the impacts of poverty. (She's now headed to Kansas to lead Topeka schools.)

Dennis W. Creedon is the superintendent in the Mahopac Central school district in upstate New York. He's taken on the challenge of empowering teachers, better integrating technology, and building teacher-developed assessments.

Born and raised in Chile, Valeria Silva—superintendent of St. Paul, Minn., schoolshas brought her unique perspective as an immigrant and English-language learner to her district.

In this video from Education Week's recent live event, they share insights and learnings from the years they've spent as districts leaders.
