BGR-1 Families,


My focus as your Superintendent is based on the belief that every student has the potential to be effectively prepared for life’s endless opportunities of a meaningful and bright future. I am humbled and grateful to the Board members for placing their faith in me, and I intend to work in partnership with them in guiding this district forward.


I have had the opportunity to play many diverse roles over my 27-year career in education, and I am confident that those experiences have effectively prepared me to lead in this new role. My journey has taught me to appreciate the work of our talented and hardworking educators and support staff, and to value the strength of a unified Board and community.  

Our focus is constant in that we believe all students can learn.  We care about each and every one, and we aim to demonstrate this by giving our best efforts as teachers, mentors, leaders, and advocates to our students, so they can become the productive citizens we know they can be.
