Charting a new and brighter path for Oregon

Recently I made the announcement that I will be stepping back from my day-to-day work with Chalkboard. This change is driven largely by healthy family considerations, a time that I hope will be devoted more to being a husband, father, and grandfather. What you have heard is true…being a grandparent really does change one’s priorities in life! Although I will no longer be in an active daily role as an educational leader, I will continue to serve our staff and Board in an advisory capacity.

New year, new faces at Chalkboard

Chalkboard’s goal since its inception has been and continues to be helping to make Oregon’s public schools among the nation’s best. Looking back on 2013, I am pleased to say that real steps have been taken to move Oregon closer to a top 10 education system. Innovative educators, strong education leaders, bold legislators and a focused Governor all helped to make 2013 a year of moving in the right direction. If you haven’t read our legislative re-cap or our holiday message, please do.

From her decade spent leading the Springfield School District (and named superintendent of the year in '11) to her current role as Oregon's Chief Education Officer, Dr. Nancy Golden has had a leading voice in Oregon's effort to improve our education system. Before Nancy accepted the influential position as CEO, she was helping to lead our TeachOregon Project, an initiative to develop and pilot innovative models of teacher preparation.
