Bill Zima

Superintendent at Regional School Unit #2, Maine

Every time I talk to Bill Zima, superintendent of RSU2 in Maine, I learn something new or think a little differently about education. He has over 15 years of school experience, both in the classroom and in the district offices, and he constantly thinks about how to best educate students. Bill always advocates for the success of every kid in his district.

And did I mention he started his career at the Phoenix Zoo and Disney’s Animal Kingdom training animals and designing learning experiences for people to interact with and learn from the natural world?

KnowledgeWorks submitted a SXSWedu session that would feature Bill’s insight on how we ensure students are prepared for the future workforce. If our session is selected, Bill would be able to share RSU2’s progress toward including hope as a success measurement throughout the district.
