A message from our Superintendent

As I begin my transition as your new superintendent, I want to say what an honor it is for me to accept the superintendent position for the Tenino School District. I can't imagine doing anything other than being around kids and the adults whose passion is to inspire, to support, to enrich, and to positively impact the lives of every student. Through all of my experiences in K-12 education, I've learned to appreciate the work of educators and the strength of a supportive, inspired community.

I believe every student is entitled to a world-class educational experience. To this end, every person in the district must be committed to the concept of continuous improvement and every school must have a leader who will drive high levels of student achievement. I will support innovation and initiatives that accelerate student achievement and streamlined curriculum with real-time assessment data. It is important to provide each staff member the support and resources necessary to effectively serve and support each of our students. Just as we have high hopes and high expectations for our students, I will expect nothing less from each staff member.

In addition to the work of staff, it is critical to form authentic partnerships with families, community groups, and the district to ensure all students will graduate on time, ready to pursue a career or college pathway.

I am appreciative for the welcome I have received from staff and the community and I am eager to learn as much as I can about how our district operates. I'm also well aware of the challenges and opportunities ahead of us. What is clear is there are many great people and terrific things happening in Tenino. I hope we can collaboratively build on our strengths and make Tenino an even better place for all students.

Finally, I wish all of you a most excellent summer. I look forward to seeing you all soon.
