TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — Tippecanoe School Corporation Assistant Superintendent for Personnel Susan DeLong will retire June 30, after 37 years in education.
DeLong's career started as a 1st grade teacher at Dayton Elementary. From there she went on to be the principal at Oakland, Lindwood and Glenn Acres elementary schools.
She came back to TSC in 2003 and has been in her current position since 2006. She said her decision to retire wasn't an easy one to make.
"I think that Tippecanoe County is a fantastic place to be an educator because there is such a supportive community and I've had the good fortune of being in supportive communities all along the way," said DeLong.
DeLong earned her bachelor’s degree and master’s degree from Purdue University and a doctorate degree from Indiana State University.
Her retirement plans include spending more time with her family. The search for a new Assistant Superintendent for Personnel will begin this spring.
