Superintendent of Schools, Chippewa Falls Area Unified School District, Chippewa Falls, WI
I was told by my high school guidance counselor that I should consider something different than going to a four-year college because I would likely be a C student at best. My freshman English professor told me I should change my major from education to nursing because the entrance for the school of education was so competitive, odds were that I wouldn’t make it. In my first administrative job, I was told that women didn’t belong in a position like the one I held.
