Dr. Paul C. Gagliarducci began his successful career in education beginning as an elementary school teacher and retired after 39 years; the last 22 years as a school superintendent. Teaching experiences at the elementary and middle school level, administrative work as a vice principal, principal, an assistant superintendent, and superintendent highlight Paul’s career. He has worked in rural, suburban, and regional districts in both Massachusetts and Connecticut. He is a graduate of Fitchburg State University. He holds advanced graduate degrees from Springfield College and received his doctorate from the University of Massachusetts.

Throughout his career and during retirement, he is active in state and regional associations holding several leadership positions. Dr. Gagliarducci has also presented at numerous conferences. He has assisted regional school districts in Massachusetts with their plans to expand their district size, helped to develop strategic plans, and prepared documents for new school construction projects. He currently serves as the part-time superintendent in Bozrah, CT.

Paul believes in the adage, “pay it forward”. To do so he has also worked with American International College in Springfield, Massachusetts as an adjunct professor and a mentor for aspiring administrators.

He brings to the CABE Executive Search Services the belief that superintendents can make a difference and that helping Boards of Education find the “right” leadership helps to make learning a positive experience for the children in their community. Of proud note, he is thrilled that two of his children have become educators working in Connecticut districts.
