  • The experience in Miami University's Superintendent Licensure program was one of relationships and professionalism. The professors and content provided me with the necessary tools and mindset to dig deeper into the day to day experiences I had as an educational leader. I was able to evaluate decisions above me, at the building, and within the teacher ranks with an increased sense of clarity and understanding. I highly recommend this program as you leave with not only a higher sense of purpose but a solid network of administrators of which to continue your career.
