Dear Madison-Plains Community,
Greetings! I hope this finds you well!
My name is Chad Eisler, and I am the new superintendent here at Madison-Plains Local Schools. Though I have been in the office for several weeks doing the work, with the calendar turning to August today, I officially begin my duties in this role, and as such, I wanted to post this letter to introduce myself to you.
I am originally from northeast Ohio. After graduation from high school, I attended Lakeland Community College where I earned an associate of arts degree. From there I transferred to Kent State University where I completed my bachelor of science degree in secondary education with a concentration in English. After graduation, I got a job at my alma mater, Riverside High School, teaching English and coaching football and track.
While I was teaching, I went to graduate school at night and during the summers and earned my master's degree and principal's license, also at Kent State University. After eight years as a high school English teacher, I decided to move into administration. I spent two years at Perry Middle School as an assistant principal and then moved to Perry High School and served there as an assistant principal for three years.
With five years of experience as an assistant, I felt I was ready to become a principal, and having a desire to move to central Ohio and the greater Columbus area, I focused the majority of my search there, and I landed at London High School where I have been the principal for the last eight years.
During my time as principal, I took and completed coursework to get my superintendent's license at Ohio State University. This spring I decided to search for a superintendency, and I was very excited when I was offered the position here at Madison-Plains.
My vision for us as an organization is that we will become a model of rural education. For this to happen, it will take all of us working together and doing our part. With that in mind, as I have entered and begun to learn more about MP, I am so pleased with the solid foundation that presently exists and from which we can continue to build. The data and the stories I am hearing bear-out that good things are happening here. I have been impressed with the staff members, the community members, and the students that I have met. Everyone has been so warm and welcoming, and I am very much enjoying being a part of the Golden Eagle family!
I am excited to continue on with the work, and in the coming weeks, I will be communicating opportunities to meet you and for you to share with me your perspective on the successes and the opportunities for growth that you see here at Madison-Plains.
I hope you enjoy these last days of summer, and I hope you are looking forward to a wonderful school year. I know I am.
You may follow me on Twitter at @Mr_Eisler. I will be posting information there about what is happening at Madison-Plains, including information about school delays and cancellations.
It is a blessing, an honor, and a privilege to serve the community of Madison-Plains.
We are MP! Go Eagles!
All the best,
Chad Eisler, Superintendent
Madison-Plains Local Schools
