Merton Schools Superintendent Mark Flynn plans to announce his retirement and step down from the helm of the Merton School District after a special school board meeting tonight.
The longtime superintendent has led the School District for 14 years, and he has spent 31 years in education – 23 of them as a superintendent.
"I’m old," the 55-year-old Flynn joked.
Flynn said he is looking forward to taking some time off, but he still plans to be involved in education.
"It’s just time, and then also some opportunities are opening up for me at the university level. I’ve been involved at (Cardinal Stritch University) for about the last 10 years now as an adjunct professor."
Flynn has taught education law courses at the university, but he said he is excited about the opportunity to work in teacher and school administrator preparation programs. For now, he plans to wait and see what becomes available.
"I’ll take some time off. I’ll see what becomes available, otherwise my plan is to continue at Cardinal Stritch in the adjunct role and then see what happens," he said.
"That’s why I got my foot in the door (at Cardinal Stritch), so when I was at this kind of point in my life, I’d be able to have something where I could still keep my fingers in the educational pie."
