February 26, 2015
For many educators, pursuing this career path is a true calling. It can mean a life of long days, deep personal relationships, and the great reward of seeing children change and grow right before your eyes. But for the person who rises to the level of Principal or Head of School, it can be especially challenging to find space in those long days for a personal life. Our guest this week will give us a behind the scenes look at the delicate balance of leading teachers and students to achieve their potential while also being a community member, husband and father.
Dr. Nat Coffman became Head of School at The Prairie School in Racine, WI in July, 2014 after an extensive background in private school education. He was previously Head of School at York Country Day School, in York Pennsylvania, and Dean at the Bishop School in La Jolla, California and The Latin School of Chicago.
Nat earned his doctorate in education from the University of Pennsylvania, a Masters in Non-Profit Administration from Notre Dame, Magna Cum Laude, and his Bachelor of Arts at Claremont McKenna College.
