Dr. Andy Crozier shares not only what it was like becoming a superintendent at 28 but also his research on the experience of millennial superintendents. Dr. Crozier is currently superintendent of Central Lee Community School District in Iowa.
Dr. Andy Crozier became a superintendent when he was 28. At the time, he was the youngest superintendent in the state of Iowa. Despite his age and the dreaded label “millennial,” Dr. Crozier simply focused on what all good superintendents do—building trust.
There have been many misconceptions pushed about millennials. Even now, many don’t realize that the youngest millennials graduated college years ago, and the oldest are hitting their 40s. With millennials now making up the majority of the workforce—including in schools—more superintendencies will be filled by millennials. In this episode, Dr. Crozier shares his own experience as a millennial superintendent and speculates on how the superintendency might change with generational shifts.
