Steve Uebbing came to the Warner School as the former superintendent of the Canandaigua City School District. He brings extensive school and district experience. He taught social studies, coached, and advised student clubs as a teacher in the Letchworth Central School for a decade, before becoming the high school principal and then superintendent of the Fort Plain Central School.

As superintendent in Canandaigua from 1988-2006, Uebbing's accomplishments include: the development and implementation of four five-year strategic "Plans for Excellence;" participation in planning and implementing nearly $80 million in capital improvements; incorporation of organization-wide participatory decision-making and planning; incorporation of principled collective bargaining; development and implementation of instructional improvement models; development of partnerships with area and national corporations; development of nationally cited character education initiative; and focused improvement resulting in high levels of student performance.

During Uebbing's tenure, Canandaigua Schools consistently received state and national recognition, including a national Blue Ribbon School of Excellence Award for Canandaigua Academy. He was the 1999 NYS Superintendent of the Year and, most recently, the 2009 recipient of the NYS Council of School Superintendents (NYSCSS) Distinguished Service award, the Council’s highest honor.

At Warner, Uebbing teaches courses in educational leadership with a focus on K-12 school leadership and educational decision-making. His primary research and writing interests are in leadership development. Uebbing also does extensive work supporting local school districts. Articles by Uebbing have appeared in Middle School Journal, The School Administrator, The Executive Educator, and The Journal of School Business Officials International. Uebbing is a frequent speaker at state and national conferences.
