"SON OF A...!" LAKE SUPERIOR STATE UNIVERSITY NAMES NEW EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR TO HEAD CHARTER SCHOOL OFFICE...& HIS LAST NAME IS OSHELSKI, TOO! Son Of Former Director, Most Recently A Sault Ste. Marie 4th Grade Teacher, Named To Head Office That Authorizes (Among Other Public School Academies) Bay City Academy, Grand Traverse Academy

Meet the new boss, (almost the) same as the old boss!

What's next...a Habermehl progeny joining Brian Lynch's Mitten Educational Management?

Thanks to a tip from a reader of this blog, Miss Fortune has learned that Chris Oshelski, a former 4th grade charter school teacher apparently lacking the upper level management experience required in the job's position description, has nonetheless been named Executive Director of Lake Superior State University's Charter School office.

Replacing his father, Nick, who announced his retirement in March, Chris Oshelski was most recently a 4th grade teacher at Joseph K. Lumsden Bahweting Anishnabe PSA in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. 

The charter school originally opened in 1994 as a tribal school sponsored by the Sault Ste. Marie band of Chippewa Indians. In 1995, the school was chartered by Northern Michigan University to become a public school academy and is renamed Bahweting Anishnabe Public School Academy. In 1998, the Bahweting Anishnabe PSA was renamed Joseph K. Lumsden Bahweting Anishnabe PSA in honor of the late Chippewa tribal leader. 

The position description listed the following “Minimum Qualifications”:

A master’s degree and at least five years of experience in traditional or charter school K-12 administration – including experience in supervision of faculty and staff members, budget management, curriculum development, and assessment. Excellent communication and interpersonal skills are required. The successful candidate will need to occasionally work long days, evenings and weekends, as well as travel to authorized and proposed PSA sites year-round by automobile. 

Must be tough to find good help these days!

  1. We can assume that the young Mr. Chris Oshelski had such excellent communication skills that Lake Superior State University was convinced he was the ideal candidate. Wonder if they have graduate and doctoral level classes on nepotism, or objectiviy? His father, Nick Oshelski, must have communicated to LSSU that his son would so capably fill his shoes. And maybe wallet, too?
