Educational Philosophy

I strive to create a school system in which excellence is the standard. As the leader of the district, it is my responsibility to model behaviors that support this objective. Schools should not only teach intellectual content but also life skills and behaviors that will allow students to become fully actualized citizens of society. A student success is only realized years later upon achieving life goals and contributing something of magnitude to society.
