What if you could get a glimpse into the journey of an extraordinary education leader from his humble beginnings to his current role as a superintendent?
Meet Blake Enlow, the Superintendent of Bowie ISD, who graciously takes us through his life in Coppell, Texas, his move to Bowie, and his transformation from being a teacher to an administrator. We explore his roots, his college life at Midwestern State University, and his family's deep connection to Bowie.
Navigating the path of education is not an easy job, let alone transitioning from teaching to administration. It involves making tough decisions, valuing the experiences of others, and ensuring that everyone moves in the same direction. Blake opens up about these challenges, the struggle to find the right job, and his commitment to the school community. We also explore the process Blake went through to get his superintendent certificate and the decision to take on the role of Superintendent.
As the world grappled with the challenges brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic and the precipitous shift to online learning, Blake shares his experience dealing with these challenges. He candidly discusses his transition from high school principal to superintendent, the advice he received from his predecessor, and the impact of a four-day school week. The importance of communication and collaboration is underscored through Blake's journey, along with the power of building relationships. So, join us on this journey to gain insights into the life of an education leader and learn how he navigates through the challenges thrown his way.
