Our County Collaborative Charter School Board
William Hall, President
I have worked in education for the past 46 years as teacher, counselor, principal and consultant. I am also a certified core adjunct faculty member at National University, working with aspiring teachers, administrators and counselors. I enjoy serving as a board member of County Collaborative Charter School. Doing so affords me, as well as all board members, an opportunity to affect policies, procedures, and programs that have a direct, positive impact upon students.
Michael Humphrey, Vice President
My career started in education as a result of a startling realization, while working in juvenile probation, that there must be a way to have a positive impact on children so they might avoid the pitfalls of what I saw them experiencing in this early career work. I developed a vision and a dream that things could be better. Elementary education was a bright path to that end. 45 years later after having been an elementary school teacher, a special educator, a public elementary and private junior high principal, a college professor in my field of psychology and now an active board member has given me a rare opportunity to see that dream realized. Board membership is an extension of that dream and I am so grateful that it continues to this day and hopefully will as long as I am able to help. I am convinced that we do noble work together.
