Cunningham follows passion to state level
In the last 24 years, Daniel Cunningham has witnessed Frederick County education through the eyes of a principal, associate superintendent for secondary schools and deputy superintendent.
Cunningham has been deputy superintendent for Frederick County Public Schools since 2005.He is leaving the position on July 1 to become director of instructional assessment at the Maryland State Department of Education's Division of Instruction.
In the position Cunningham will lead the state's work on programs helping students through state assessments.
Working with administrators from all 24 jurisdictions in Maryland, he will help align state assessments to what is being taught in classrooms across Maryland, said Colleen Seremet, assistant state superintendent for instruction.
,,Dan was the perfect combination," she said. ,,He carries tremendous credibility with local school systems ... It's important in these roles to understand the teacher's role, the principal's role.He's been in the trenches, he knows how to make a master schedule, he knows how to hire teachers."
Cunningham, 55, has been working in Maryland public school systems for 32 years.He started out teaching government and world history in Caroline County.In 1983, he moved to Frederick County and became assistant principal at Middletown High School.After, he was principal at West Frederick Middle and Frederick High.
Cunningham started exploring the links between curriculum and assessments when he became Frederick County's associate superintendent for secondary instruction.Cunningham completed his 140-page doctoral thesis on what schools are required to teach, what is being taught in the classroom and on what students are tested.
The fact that his new position focuses on this relationship is what lured Cunningham out of Frederick County Public Schools.
,,When you tell people you are interested in that, you seem nerdy," he said. ,,But I am going to get immersed into that. ...What I hope to bring there is an understanding of what happens at local school systems.It's about bringing in a degree of reality."
After three decades of working in Frederick County, the most difficult thing to leave behind will be relationships with other county educators, Cunningham said.
,,But I believe in doing other things and taking new challenges," he said. ,,This is an opportunity for me to do something good."
