Shelia Sitzlar recalls getting a phone call four years ago from then outgoing Roane County director of schools Toni McGriff.
“She said, ‘Are you going to apply for that job?’” Sitzlar remembers. “I said, ‘No,’ and she said, ‘Why not?’ I said, ‘Because I’m not ready.’”
Sitzlar, the principal at Kingston Elementary School, doesn’t feel that way anymore.
She was one of three people the Roane County Board of Education interviewed for the director of schools job on Monday.
