The best large-district school superintendent in Arizona is right here in Tucson.
Vicki Balentine, leader of Amphitheater Public Schools, was selected All-Arizona Superintendent of the Year for large school districts by the Arizona School Administrators Association.
Balentine started as a teacher more than three decades ago. Since then, she has been a principal, a dropout-prevention coordinator and assistant superintendent.
She has been the Amphi superintendent since 2000.
Running a school district, with its many competing demands, is a very difficult job. Balentine does it exceptionally well. We congratulate her.
