New Leadership for Wayne County Schools w/Todd Alexander

New Leadership for Wayne County Schools

Todd Alexander (Twitter, LinkedIn) is the current superintendent of Wayne County Schools in West Virginia. He was a classroom teacher and administrator with Cabell County Schools for twenty plus years before making the move to Wayne County. Todd was instrumental in the introduction of the Handle With Care program in Cabell County Schools and a tremendous professional contact for myself during my time working there. We discuss his first year on the job and what his experience has been like as “the new guy.” Todd also shares some of the lessons he has learned during his time in education and what goals he has for his time with Wayne County Schools.
