John Street, Director of Special Education at ESU 10, was awarded the Council of Administrators of Special Education (CASE) Outstanding Administrator on Wednesday, April 13, 2016 at it’s annual conference held in St. Louis. The award recognizes individuals making significant professional contributions to leadership behavior and field practice in the administration of programs for students with disabilities and/or who are gifted. Nebraska has only had one other award winner in the 30 years this award has been celebrated.
John has served in many capacities over the years, while keeping the most important focus in sight - the students. He started as a special education teacher and quickly advanced as a leader in the field. The confidence others have in his leadership is exemplified by how frequently members in the Nebraska Association of Special Education Supervisors have leaned on him for support and guidance.
For any of us who know or are fortunate enough to work with John, we know this award is well deserved. He has been an outstanding leader for those of us in the special education department and has had a profound impact on students with disabilities in central Nebraska. His worked has shaped how we do business and will continue that impact long in to the future.
