Leading Successful and Dynamic Schools: A Superintendent’s Perspective
To say that Scott Taylor is an accomplished educator would be an understatement. Not only does he hold a bachelor’s degree in English, but he also has a master’s in educational administration and his doctorate in educational leadership. He wrote his doctoral dissertation on curriculum policy and reform, and also specializes in the management and leveraging of technology with regard to classroom instruction.
Dr. Taylor is currently the superintendent of the Highland Park School District in New Jersey, but over the course of his career in education, he has also held positions as principal, assistant principal and curriculum director. In addition to his duties in the Highland Park School District, Dr. Taylor also serves as an adjunct professor at both Montclair University and Rutgers University.
“Dr. Taylor is a 21st century leader who brings the knowledge and experience to address some of the most pressing issues facing our school district,” Adam Sherman, Highland Park School Board president, told the Highland Park Planet. “Dr. Taylor has demonstrated a clear commitment to improving education for ALL – an issue that we, as a community, have identified as an area to address.”
His blog, Leading Successful and Dynamic Schools, covers a variety of helpful topics for educators, such as the value of humility, to the importance of timely communication that leads to swift results.
