  • After the First Day of School

    As the superintendent of our #districtofchoice, I am privileged to see firsthand more than 11,500 students from preschool to grade twelve gain the skills necessary to become our future teachers, entrepreneurs, doctors, scientists, engineers, public workers, and the like. I am blessed to work with a team of the hardest working, most creative, and truly innovative thinkers in the state. COVID-19 is our current reality, but it is not who we are, nor will it stop us from moving forward. Our education system has been turned upside down, but we will land right side up with innovation beyond what we have imagined.
