I am humbled and honored to lead Spartan Nation. I will continue to build strong relationships with the staff, students, and the community as we maintain our collective responsibility to support students through strong Professional Learning Communities and a multi-tiered system of support. My priority is to ensure that all students feel safe and supported so that they can take academic risks and thrive far beyond high school.
