See also

Less than 48 hours, the new superintendent of Atlanta Public Schools, spent Saturday, March 29, 2014, meeting and greeting her stakeholders, students, parents, staff and community. Town House meetings were held at six high schools throughout the APS area. Dr. Meria Carstarphen, (pronounced Car-STAR-fin) is already on the move making her presence and leadership style known. She is already setting the tone and establishing her brand of leadership that she will bring to APS and Atlanta. Meeting with her stakeholders throughout the day, Dr. Carstarphen, embraced hands, exchanged smiles and answered questions in her relaxed and confident voice.

At each meeting the future of Atlanta Public Schools stressed her accessibility as superintendent. The meetings gave the new superintendent to be, a snapshot of how much work is needed in APS. The district’s process in Atlanta, involves a period of waiting. The board will not officially vote to hire the next superintendent of APS, until April 14, 2014.

The pessimist in Atlanta may say, there is a possibility between now and April 14, the board may not approve the hiring. Then, there is the optimist, like Dr. Carstarphen, who is very confident about her leadership skills and vision for Atlanta Public Schools. Under the leadership of new board chairman, Courney English there is no doubt the board will vote to approve her hiring unanimously. The board has done their homework in their selection of Dr. Meria Carstarphen. Welcome to Atlanta. Children first.

Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes. -Peter Drucker
