Amid Sexual Emails, Former DSM Superintendent Sebring Had Choice Words for Ankeny School Board, Wendt
Buried in Nancy Sebring's emails are her opinions on the Ankeny school board and former Superintendent Matthew Wendt.
Deep in the emails that led to her early departure as Des Moines Schools Superintendent, Nancy Sebring expressed some strong opinions about the Ankeny school board and the superintendent at the time, Matthew Wendt.
Sebring resigned after it was discovered that she sent dozens of sexually explicit emails to her lover, and writing the notes on district computers cost her a job she had lined up to become superintendent in Omaha.
More of the emails were released last week after she lost a court fight trying to keep them private.
The Des Moines Register reports that in one April 25 exchange, she tells her lover about a breakfast meeting with Ankeny Superintendent Matthew Wendt, and said “he’s got a crazy board.”
Sebring called Wendt “an arrogant guy and not well liked by his staff,” according to the paper.
“However, I try to look for the good in people, and he has some definite good qualities,” she wrote. “There are some interesting issues going on in Ankeny.”
