About Dr. Jean Winsand
Dr. Jean Winsand was an associate professor in both the Departments of Instruction and Learning and Administrative and Policy Studies in The University of Pittsburgh’s School of Education. She was a woman of integrity, determination, professionalism, and absolute passion for quality teaching and leadership. While Dr. Winsand was uncompromising on standards, especially in the service of learners and communities, she was incredibly accommodating in the support of learning and growth for professionals in the field. She fervently advocated for more females in administration at both the University level and in K-12 schools. Dr. Winsand was a consummate professional, but was also equally very human. She was a colorful woman who was accessible, fun-loving, and laid back. Her legacy is a reminder of our constant roles as learners, teachers and leaders.
