Retiring River Falls superintendent ready for a less-definable future
Soon Tom Westerhaus can kick back and reflect on more than four decades in education as a teacher and administrator.
His last day on the job as River Falls school superintendent before taking vacation and then retiring is Friday, June 21.
“Well, I have to work on guilt reduction – guilt of not working, not accomplishing,” Westerhaus says. “But I know one thing: I won’t be superintendent making decisions anymore.”
