“I consider my role as an educator a responsibility, a privilege, and a joy. I cannot imagine doing anything else. I voraciously explore the many challenges of serving as an educational leader with an unbridled curiosity to learn where the intersections of best educational practices lie to meet the needs of my school community, its children, parents, faculty and staff.”
