Welcome Letter from the Superintendent of Schools


Grass Lake Schools Family,

I am honored to introduce myself as the new Superintendent of Schools.  Although I do not start officially until July 1, I have been in the district all week.  It is with great enthusiasm that I join this esteemed district and embark on this journey together with each of you.

First and foremost, I want to express my gratitude for the warm welcome I have received since my arrival. The sense of community and commitment to education that I have witnessed already is truly inspiring. I am eager to collaborate with all stakeholders—students, parents, teachers, staff, and community members—to continue fostering an environment where every student can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.

My background in education spans over 21 years with 16 serving in school leadership positions, during which I have had the privilege of serving in various roles that have shaped my approach to leadership and learning. I am deeply committed to educational excellence and honoring our community’s traditions. These values will guide my work as we strive to provide the best possible educational experiences for all our students.

I believe in the power of collaboration and open communication. As we move forward, I am eager to listen to your perspectives, ideas, and aspirations for our schools. Together, we will build on our strengths and tackle any challenges that may arise, always keeping the best interests of our students at the forefront of our efforts.

Please know that my door is always open, and I welcome your input and feedback. I am dedicated to transparency and accountability as we work together to achieve our shared goals for our schools and our community.

In closing, I am truly excited about what lies ahead for our district. With your support and engagement, I am confident that we will continue to provide an outstanding educational experience for every student. I look forward to meeting each of you and working together to ensure the success of every student in our district.
