It is truly an honor to be able to serve the
students, families and communities of Airway
Heights, the greater West Plains, and the
City of Cheney as the new superintendent of
Cheney Public Schools.
During the past seventeen years I have had
the opportunity to work as an elementary
teacher, literacy coach, staff developer,
principal, and superintendent. Throughout
my career I have focused on improving my
individual practice and the collective practice
of the systems I have worked in and led.
In addition to our
teaching and learning focus, an important aspect of
our work is addressing our growing population base. With community
growth comes the need to plan and prepare so that we can continue
to offer the quantity and quality of programs that are available in our
schools. As a system we are committed to working hard to analyze
the needs of our entire district, and to make decisions that benefit all
students and families as our communities and schools continue to grow.
As a father of five, I
want the very best for each and every one of
my children. Likewise, I want the very best for each of the approximately
4,300 students that we serve in Cheney Public Schools. Every child in
our system deserves our very best each and every day, and our goal is
to ensure that this occurs.
Again, I am honored and
excited to serve as the superintendent of
Cheney Public Schools. I look forward to working with our communities
and families as we continue to build upon the exceptional educational
foundation that is in place.
For our children, our community, our world, our future ~
