About

"My start in public education was as a high school U.S. history teacher, and political science was perfect training for fostering robust, interesting and insightful conversations with my students. Now that I have moved on to the district (superintendent of schools) level, my Poli Sci studies are just as relevant and informative, as I frequently have to navigate the choppy waters of local and state (and sometimes even national) politics."

Jim is currently Superintendent of Schools for the Wissahickon Public School District, which serves 4,500 students in the Northwest Philadelphia suburbs.
