Longtime Roseville Superintendent to retire Aug. 1
A room full of kindergarteners may not be the prime example of a place where most people can find a sense of inner zen. But Roseville Area Schools Superintendent John Thein says there’s no better place for him to find calm on a bad day—except maybe a class in the district’s senior program.
And it’s no wonder Thein likes to spend time with the kindergarteners. School board member Kitty Gogins, who’s known Thein since she joined a district committee in 2004, remembers Thein once went to a kindergarten class to read aloud, and when he asked the students what they thought he did, one student confidently shouted, “You’re the President!”
