Jane Sigford is the executive director of curriculum and instruction for a suburban school district. She is also an adjunct professor at Hamline University, where she teaches in the Educational Leadership doctorate program.Sigford's doctorate in educational policy and administration was earned at the University of Minnesota. Her strengths and interests lie in shaping education to meet the needs of the 21 st century. In her current district, Sigford's role is to loosen the traditional paradigms of education so that they can shape their own future. They conduct future searches to see where they want to be in five years and then design their curriculum and assessment accordingly.In addition, Sigford facilitates large group discussions about complex issues, such as self-examination of middle school programs. Rather than strategic planning, she facilitates self-studies with a future focus.Corwin Press has published Jane Sigford's two books, including The Effective School Leader's Guide to Management (2006) and Who Said School Administration Would be Fun?, Second Edition (2005). The second title is used as a text in several local administrative licensure programs.Sigford has conducted trainings internationally.

She has licensure in teaching students with emotional disorders and learning disabilities.
