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.  It is my belief that as educators we must consistently analyze our practice and continue to learn so that we can create an education system that meets the needs of all students.

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 ~
