Bert Hendee

NSIP Board President, Time Change Coach

Bert retired from education after 35 years as a teacher, assistant principal, principal and director of Human Resources and Leadership Development in Springfield, IL. She then spent 11 years as an assistant director for the Large Unit District Association in Illinois, supporting leaders in the largest school districts in Illinois.

Through the association with Mark Shellinger when both were leading the work with the Wallace Foundation LEAD project in their districts, she brought SAMs to Springfield as she was retiring in 2007. When SAMs became the National SAM Innovation Project non-profit in 2011, she was part of the founding board of directors and has humbly served as its president ever since. Bert also serves as a Time Change Coach and has done some Implementation Specialist work, although her focus is on coaching and serving as president of the board.

Bert is passionate about the work being done by school and district leaders, which is why she wholeheartedly works to support the mission and vision of NSIP. Supporting our school and district leaders is critical to the success of teaching and learning for our children—and for our future.
