For ten years, he taught various social studies and science courses to students in grades 6-12 before stepping into the role of principal.
This newer level of responsibility allowed Arthur to increase parental involvement and create a new middle school.

In conjunction with his career, Arthur attended and pursued various professional development activities in order to better himself as a leader and provide the best possible framework for leading his school district through change. As for his own education, learning has always been one of his strong suits.
