Dr. Veronica Motley – Superintendent, Sylvania Schools
Show Notes

Elizabeth and Wallace Motley always encouraged their daughter to believe in herself and pursue stretch goals. One of Dr. Motley’s early mentors advised her to “walk through the door” when an opportunity presented itself. She became a teacher in order to create meaningful learning experiences and life-shaping opportunities for students. Prior to becoming superintendent, Dr. Motley served in a wide variety of building-level and central office leadership roles. She has navigated discrimination and survived an abusive relationship, both experiences forging a sense of purpose, perspective, and resilience that fuel her leadership approach.
