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.
