FLINT TWP. —Say hello to Eddie L. Kindle, who is the new assistant superintendent of curriculum and human resources for the Carman-Ainsworth Community School District. The school board approved his hiring in late April and he officially began work on July 1.
Retirement and reductions of five administrative positions during the past two school years made it possible to hire Kindle, said Superintendent Steve Tunnicliff, who was himself an assistant superintendent before his promotion in June 2012 after the resignation of Bill Haley. Since then, C-A has had only one assistant superintendent – Russ Parks who handles business and operations.
Kindle comes to C-A from the Port Huron Area School District; where for the past four years he has served as the assistant superintendent of administration, labor relations and operations. During 20 years with Port Huron, he served in various leadership capacities including business and physical education teacher, high school assistant principal, and middle school principal and assistant superintendent.
Kindle’s work in K-12 education has focused on student academic achievement while offering students a positive social experience, according to a press release.
Kindle said he looks forward to working with all members of the Carman-Ainsworth school community and continuing to provide outstanding educational leadership with an emphasis on accountability, expectations, performance, and results.
Tunnicliff said that Kindle brings to C-A a wealth of positive and diverse administrative experience that is expected to be a tremendous asset to the school district.
