#13: Lead from your Seat with Superintendent Dr. McGown

In this episode, we unpack the characteristics it takes to be someone who leads from your seat. Klein ISD Superintendent, Dr. McGown, joins us and shares examples of people that have touched her life with the qualities that we should all strive to have each day in our work to serve others. 
I'm excited to welcome back our repeat guest Superintendent Dr. Jenny McGown as she has deep roots in the Klein community. She is a dedicated leader who has also served Klein ISD in the roles of deputy superintendent, chief learning officer, executive director, principal, assistant principal, and classroom teacher. She first became an educator in Uzbekistan where many of her first students were girls who had never had the opportunity to attend school, and their resilience and tenacious desire to learn captured her heart. 
 Dr. McGown has recently been named the 2019 Outstanding Woman in Education by the American Association of University Women-North Harris County Branch for her contributions to the field of education. Additionally, she was recognized as one of the top 40 professionals under 40 across all sectors in the greater Houston area by the Houston Business Journal in 2017 and the Houston BizWoman Headliner in Education in 2018. 
She also serves on the Google for Education North America K-12 Advisory Board, Pearl Fincher Museum of Fine Arts Board, Northwest Assistance Ministries Board, Klein Education Foundation Board of Directors, and the Lone Star College Chancellor’s Advisory Council.

Outside of professional life, Dr. McGown enjoys spending time with her husband, Brian, and children, Joshua and Mary Claire, both Klein ISD students.
