Joseph Burke, right, the current superintendent of the Monroe County School District, is  greeted by Joan Downen and her son Seth Rodenhofer, 9, along with his dinosaur puppet during a meet and greet that allowed the public to talk personally to the top four candidates for superintendent of the Lee County School District on Thursday at the  Lee County Public Education Center in Fort Myers. Downen is a geometry teacher at Riverdale High School and is also on the search committee for a superintendent. 'I want a candidate who understands from top to bottom how to run an organization and can be compassionate and sensitive to the issues around them,' Downen said. Lexey Swall/Staff
