The PublicSchoolWORKS Team

Let's Talk!

Steve Temming, Ph.D.

President and Chief Executive Officer

Steve Temming developed PublicSchoolWORKS with the benefit of a wonderful team of school administrators actively employed in 11 school districts – from small rural to large urban. In addition, Steve had an impressive track record in developing and leading innovative programs for public institutions. With more than 22 years of experience working for or in public school districts, his stint as an administrator for Cincinnati Public Schools (CPS) afforded him the opportunity to experience first-hand the challenges and limitations surrounding the business operations side of a public school district (including Environmental Health & Safety), while establishing a number of programs and improvements based on best practices. Prior to CPS, Steve was president of a professional consulting firm and on the faculty of the University of Cincinnati.
