Mark Maus, human resources executive director for North Kansas City Schools, has been a MoASBO member since 2016.
Here’s what Mark Maus had to say when asked the following questions:
1) Why is it important for Human Resource personnel to participate in MoASBO?
Human Resources connects with multiple parts of an organization. For an organization to be successful, Human Resources must work with the Finance department.
2) How did you get started in the education profession?
My grandfather and father were educators; it is in my blood. Plus, I had wonderful teachers and coaches growing up that inspired me too.
3) Favorite book that influenced you as a young teacher?
“Catching Up or Leading the Way,” by Yong Zhao. It’s pretty old but it influenced me greatly!
4) Any words of wisdom for your colleagues?
Being new to central office, I’m trying to absorb everything! Always recognize and appreciate the work of those around you. Thank you to the wonderful employees at North Kansas City Schools.
