Littleton’s superintendent retiring after 40 years in education
Andover resident Pfeifer came to the Littleton school district as interim superintendent for the 2012-2013 school year and was brought back as superintendent for the current year. He recently notified the Littleton School Board he is stepping down June 30.
After graduating from Germantown Academy, he enlisted in the U.S. Army and was sent overseas. While serving as a radio man in northern South Vietnam on July 27, 1967, Pfeifer and his unit came under attack by North Vietnamese Army regulars who were infiltrating the south.
Pfeifer completed his master’s degree in special education at the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley. He subsequently earned a doctorate in educational administration and policy studies from the University of Pennsylvania.
“I’ve had many good teachers who mentored me and I hope that to some degree I did the same,” said Pfeifer, who added that he’ll miss the town of Littleton — “a beautiful community, a special place that has the best candy store (Chutters on Main Street)” — as well as the teachers and his fellow administrators, but mostly the 770 students in the Littleton public schools.
