In this edition of Through The Arsenal Gates, Glenn O'Kray interviews Dr. Glenn Maleyko, Superintendent of Dearborn Public Schools.

Glenn asks Dr. Maleyko about his mentors growing up and how they shaped him over the years. We learn how playing hockey and later coaching was a big part of his early days, and that coaching led him into changing his career path to education. The discussion continues with talk about Dr. Maleyko's early days of teaching and his current role as Superintendent of Dearborn Schools. The conversation concludes with information about the district's involvement in social media, the Students First message and how staying connected with students and parents is an important part of Dr. Maleyko's vision of the future for Dearborn schools.
