Bob Glascock developed and lead The Breakthrough Center for the Maryland State Department of Education, a nationally recognized model for school turnaround. Prior to working at the state level, he was the Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum, Instruction, and Technology for six years in Howard County serving 52,000 students across 72 schools. Bob has taught a wide range of students and subjects, most recently at the The Johns Hopkins University, where he led graduate-level seminars for Teach for America candidates. His leadership style is guided by the following principles:
- Children come first, always. Invest in people.
- When challenges arise, engage and listen. Excel in the present, but plan for the future.
- Communicate the “why”: people may not always agree with the decision, but they are more likely to accept it if they understand it.
