He has a B.A. in English and English Education and a Master’s in Education in Educational Leadership. Glen received his Juris Doctorate with Distinction from Ohio Northern School of Law in 2002. While at ONU, Glen participated on the Jessup International Law Moot Court Team, was on the Dean’s List, was the recipient of the Summer Legal Scholar award, selected a member of the Willis Society and was Editor-in-Chief of the Law Review.
Upon graduation from ONU law, Glen took an associate position practicing in the corporate legal department at DKW Law Group in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. After practicing in the litigation group, Glen took a position with Maiello, Brungo, & Maiello in Pittsburgh, a firm that represented seven to eight school districts in the Pittsburgh region as school board solicitor or special counsel. Missing Florida, Glen returned to Tampa in 2005 as Assistant Principal for Curriculum at a large urban high school that also had an International Baccalaureate program. While in this position, he also began teaching education law and school administrative course at the University of South Florida and National Louis University for those wishing to earn a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership. He was active with the University of South Florida in preparing future educators and wrote the school law section of the Florida Educational Leadership Exam for the Florida Department of Education. Passing this exam is a requirement for to receive a principal license in Florida. Glen jokingly refers the exam as the Bar exam for principals.
He has spent the last seven years serving as Assistant Principal for Curriculum at an alternative education/dropout prevention site serving at-risk secondary students including a teen parent program. He recently retired from education after thirty years of service, twenty-one as an administrator, and is currently developing an educational consulting team consisting of a retired principal, a former school board member and former superintendant to promote bold leadership principles in aspiring school leaders. He is also part of the recruitment of future school leaders and the training program for assistant principals in the Tampa school district and will be presenting at the Florida Association of School Administrators state conference this June. His topic will address liability issues facing today’s school administrators.
His education law experiences coupled with his twenty-one years of school site administrative experience makes him uniquely qualified in the area.
