- Author BiographyReginald Leon Green is Professor of Educational Leadership at the University of Memphis. Prior to joining the faculty at the University of Memphis, he was on the faculty of educational administration at Wright State University, Dayton, Ohio. Earlier, Dr. Green served at the teacher, principal, deputy superintendent, and superintendent levels of elementary and secondary education. In 1977, Dr. Green was one of five educators chosen nationally to participate in the Rockefeller Foundation's Superintendency Preparation Program; and in 1996, he was selected as an Associate to the Institute for Educational Renewal, under the leadership of Dr. John Goodlad. Most recently, Dr. Green co-authored with Sergiovanni the seventh edition of the book entitled The Principalship: A Reflective Practice Perspective. He has also published the first edition of The Four Dimensions of Principal Leadership: A Foundation for Leading 21st Century Schools. Additionally, he has authored a book on inner-city education, as well as various articles concerning such topics as educational restructuring, primary grade restructuring, gang violence, and other contemporary educational issues. He has completed national inquiries into nurturing characteristics that exist in schools, and standards and assessment measures being established as part of school renewal. This work led to the development of the Center for Urban School Leadership, where Dr. Green administered programs for five years to prepare principals for leadership in urban schools using a non-traditional approach. Currently, Dr. Green teaches courses in educational leadership with a focus on instructional leadership, school renewal, and models for turning around low performing schools.
