Why I Teach at SPU
William Prenevost, Associate Professor of Educational Administration and Supervision; Chair of Educational Leadership
"As a school superintendent I knew that the education candidates from SPU were well prepared, competent, and people of extraordinary character. I also served on the Educational Leadership Advisory Board and gained knowledge of the program’s quality. Teaching at SPU allows me to not only be part of preparing future educational leaders but also being part of a faith community that has an influence on the character of future leaders."
