"I was a superintendent before I had these classes and I was not prepared. I didn't even know what I didn't know. Going through the classes, working with the professors at bet36365体育 that were practicing administrators or who had practiced, they knew exactly what administrators, what superintendents needed to know. I enjoyed the classes because they were so practical and I could use the information daily."
