GREENVILLE, PA – Douglas Hazlett, education professor and chair of the Department of Education at Thiel College, was published in the September 2008 issue of The Pennsylvania Administrator magazine, a publication of the Pennsylvania Association of Elementary and Secondary School Principals.
In the article, Hazlett reviews and reflects on his year and a half of participation in the Principal Leadership Induction Program (PLI), a state-level program that pairs veteran administrators with novice principals in order to provide the new principals with the information, support and guidance they need to adjust to their new responsibilities.
“Working with my protégés is a rewarding and enjoyable activity,” says Hazlett in the article. “I can honestly say that I have made a set of new friends and have immensely enjoyed giving back to the next generation of leaders.”
Hazlett has taught at Thiel College since 2006. He is a former assistant high school principal, curriculum director and assistant superintendent. He has received recognition as a PDE Distinguished Educator and was honored with PASCD’s 2001 Supervision and Curriculum Development Award.
He and his wife, Lisa, are residents of West Middlesex and are the parents of two young daughters.
