Superintendent Chris Coffelt works tirelessly to recruit, retain, and improve the practice of teachers who might otherwise be drawn to bigger cities and bigger salaries outside his small Iowa school district. His work with developing teacher talent has made the 750-student Central Decatur Community School District a beacon of teacher leadership.
“Our classrooms and classroom teachers are no longer isolated,” Coffelt says. “They feel energized and supported.”
