This Superintendent Takes the Latest Super Bowl Victory in Stride (like he’s been there before)

When it comes to NFL football fans, Super Bowl Champion KC Chief fans are as sufferable as they get, even though Superintendent and Missourian Clint Freeman shamelessly sported a colorful Chiefs' sweater while registering for the conference today. He was happy to talk about the repeat champion's conquest in Las Vegas last week. Me? I'm a New Yorker and a NY Giants fan so I am fully aware that I may be among the insufferable lot of fans associated with some East Coast metropolis teams. Clint, on the other hand, is a true gentleman, a classy winner, and a superintendent thirsty for knowledge as he attends his second AASA national conference. Like many of us superintendents, even small wins are good.

Clint expects to take away valuable insights and information this week that he can bring back to the Dunklin School District. Clint looks forward to a deep dive into a variety of topics with a variety of thought leaders from around the country. The AASA national conference is among the rare events that brings district leaders together from all over the country to share ideas and best practices.

When I brought up AI, Clint looked forward to what OpenAI expert and ambassador Abran Maldonado has to say during his keynote address on Thursday from 3:30 – 5:30. Superintendents nationally are embracing AI but also have some fears.

After thanking Clint and his wife Kathy for their time, I prompted ChatGPT to tell me about KC Chiefs fans. It said they are celebrated for their passion, loyalty, and loud cheers, often creating a challenging environment for visiting teams. I didn't prompt ChatGPT to tell me about NY Giant fans. Maybe another time.
