About the Presenter
David Murphy has been a school site administrator for over ten years and a superintendent for over twenty years. He completed doctoral coursework at Stanford University, where he studied evaluation theory and structures for effective professional supervision and learning. He has used and taught these principles of effective supervision to many administrators at both the site and district level, including during his recent four years as a faculty member at Santa Clara University. As part of this work, he served as a major coach of administrators in the Effective School Principals Program. His use of these evaluation and supervisory principles has helped many professionals promote to higher positions in accord with their career aspirations; helped develop professional capabilities of many professionals; and in a collaborative way, also caused some employees, who were still deficient, to resign from their organization.
Mr. Murphy has been elected to several state wide leadership positions in California, including as President, State Association for the Improvement of Secondary Education; Association of California School Administrators (ACSA) State Chair, Secondary Education; and ACSA State Chair, School to Career.
