Dr. John Draper, President
John Draper is the son of two teachers and a product of public schools. After graduating from college and working several years in business, he realized that he was an educator at heart. He began as a middle school science and math teacher in Calera, Alabama, and still enjoys middle school students a great deal!
One of his favorite positions was middle school assistant principal, after which he became the first principal at Oak Mountain Middle School in Shelby County, AL.
From there he served just one year as principal at Homewood High School before he was chosen to lead the Council for Leaders in Alabama Schools, a non-profit association representing all school administrators in the state. Under his leadership, the organization grew significantly in membership and funding.
After serving 9 years as the Executive Director for CLAS, John was named CEO of the Educational Research Service. He now serves as the President of Cambridge Strategic Services, an organization that guides school leaders in building proactive plans for the future. John lives in a Virginia suburb of Washington, DC with his wife, Kathy.
