Born in Baltimore, MD, Dr. Michael Shaffer has lived and worked in a number of different locales. After earning an elementary teaching degree from Morehead State University in KY, he taught for four years in a mission school. Next up was a private school in central PA and then to another private school in Marion, IN. In the fall of 2002, Shaffer began working in an urban public school district and found the professional calling of his life. Since that time, Shaffer has led several schools and a school district from academic failure to being quite successful schools. After 30 years in the K-12 ranks, as a principal at all levels and an Asst Supt in two districts, Shaffer made the move into higher education and began full time at Ball State in the Department of Ed Leadership. He currently teaches school finance, the school district administrator, advanced politics and school facilities.
