I strongly recommend that the governor nominate Steven Chamberlin to be the next New Hampshire education commissioner.

Chamberlin is currently the superintendent of schools for the Hopkinton School District. Steve has a lifetime of experience as a teacher and public school administrator. He understands, in fine detail, every aspect of the public school system, from regulatory requirements, to curriculum, preparing and defending budgets, and teaching students in the classroom.

Chamberlin has dedicated himself to the students of our district for more than 20 years, beginning as an assistant principal at Hopkinton High School. Before arriving in Hopkinton, Steve taught math for 11 years at Hollis-Brookline High School, where he also coached 26 varsity teams. His actual, lived experience and advanced degrees in education have helped him build a foundation of respect and admiration with teachers and superintendents throughout the state.

Steve could use this strong foundation, and his expert knowledge of the pressures on school budgets, to make a real difference for the students and schools in our state. Steven Chamberlin is a strong, smart leader, with a proven track record. Year after year in Hopkinton, our schools are ranked among the best in the state, while also having an average cost-per-student. Steve is eminently capable, and would be able to apply his knowledge statewide.

As education commissioner, Chamberlin would have a real, measured, positive impact on our schools in New Hampshire.
