MADISON COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT)-- Matt Massey confirmed Tuesday he will head back into the classroom as a teacher until taking over his new job as superintendent in January.
Massey was elected in a landslide primary runoff earlier this month. He will be the youngest superintendent ever to hold the office in the district.
"Just going to try to use this time to familiarize myself with the inner workings and to be prepared as possible before January first," Massey said Tuesday while sitting in on the board of education meeting.
Massey will teach math at Buckhorn High School until January, but it is unclear what will happen to that job once he leaves for the central office.
Massey says the process of getting paperwork going has already begun, but switching over the entire superintendent's office is not an easy task.
"It is not something that is just going to happen in a day or two it is going to be a long-term process, but whenever we can get that started the better," Massey added.
