Dr. Christopher Marczak - Pacific Chief of Instructional Leadership Development

Dr. Marczak brings extensive professional experience to the Pacific. Most recently, he served as Superintendent of Maury County Public Schools in Tennessee. His experience also includes educating future educational leaders as a visiting professor part-time and serving as an assistant superintendent, district lead principal, principal, assistant principal, and teacher.

"I am honored to have been selected as the CIL Chief for the DoDEA-Pacific region,” Dr. Marczek said. “As the son of a Navy Master Chief, I was once a DoDEA student. It has been my lifelong ambition to return to DoDEA to give back and to make a difference in the lives of our military-connected students. I look forward to building great relationships with our instructional leaders to ensure that our students are prepared to lead and succeed in our global society."

Dr. Marczak’s work has been nationally recognized; in 2017, he received the National School Board Association’s “20 to Watch” educational technology leader award. He is a distinguished innovative and collaborative educational leader and has led trainings nationally and across Tennessee on topics including district and principal professional development, the power of Professional Learning Communities, technology integration to impact students and school systems, and the impact of emerging technology and social media on leadership and school systems.

Dr. Marczak holds a doctorate in Leadership and Professional Practice from Trevecca Nazarene University in Nashville, Tenn.; a master’s degree in Educational Leadership, also from Trevecca Nazarene University; and a bachelor’s degree from Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, Tenn.

He and his wife, Dr. Sheila Marczak, have been married since 1995 and share four daughters.
