As the only Black male superintendent in the state of Oregon for the past eight years, Dr. Coakley writes a memoir that covers his pathway to becoming a superintendent and gives flowers to those who inspired, encouraged, and supported him.

Dr. Paul Coakley's groundbreaking memoir provides a unique perspective on education at all levels. As a counter-narrative to the traditional experiences shared by most educators, this book addresses life choices, racism, overcoming barriers, and removing obstacles, as well as learning, growing, giving back, and leaving a legacy.

Unlike most books in the current market that focus on research, instruction, or process, Dr. Coakley's memoir shares a plethora of distinct experiences that have begotten his own personal and professional growth.

A Reason for Every Season: Memoirs of A Black Superintendent in America is a collection of stories, personal experiences, and life lessons that have guided Dr. Coakley's development as a leader in education. Readers will revel in his stories and pull actionable insights from their own self-reflection - as well as topics that Dr. Coakley introduces relevant to their personal journeys.

Perfect for aspiring educators, teachers, educational leaders, principals, superintendents, and community leaders, A Reason for Every Season: Memoirs of A Black Superintendent in America is a great addition to the bookshelves of those in the education system. It's also a great pick for those who work with school districts, as well as People of Color, and leaders for equity.
