Speaker Bio

Leadership Coach • Speaker • Consultant

Dr. Candace Singh is superintendent of the award-winning Fallbrook Union Elementary School District, the first school district in the United States to be honored as a Leader in Me Lighthouse School District, where all schools serve as a model for creating an innovative and forward-thinking leadership culture that encourages and teaches children to be the leader of their own lives and to use their leadership skills to make a difference in the lives of others.

As a public educator and leader for over 30 years, Candace is nationally known and respected for her work as a turnaround principal and superintendent: blending courage, action, and exceptionally high expectations with grace, respect, and kindness to create schools and working environments that inspire greatness in students and adults. Her proven track record of transforming public schools has contributed to her reputation as a highly valued leadership coach, speaker, and consultant.

Candace began her career in public education in 1985, serving as an elementary and middle level teacher, assistant principal, principal, district curriculum leader, and now, superintendent of schools, a position she has held for over 11 years. She also serves as a teacher of leadership at the university level, inspiring and preparing future school leaders to develop cultures and systems that contribute to higher levels of academic and personal achievement for all students.

As a first-generation college graduate, Candace holds a Bachelor’s degree in elementary education from San Diego State University and a Master’s degree in Educational Administration. She earned her doctoral degree in Organizational Leadership at the University of La Verne, where she studied district leadership practices that contribute to principal effectiveness and job satisfaction.
