Dear visitor,

As a district, it is our mission to provide individualized student learning experiences in caring learning communities.  When I joined 916 as a teacher in 2006 I quickly realized that we have a very important and unique role as providers of innovative solutions driven by our students and member district needs.  Delivering on our mission to provide exceptional services is a privilege and incredible responsibility. I am honored to be serving 916 as the Superintendent, to partner with our member districts and stand in service with our staff as a trusted educational provider. I am also incredibly proud of the 916 educators that I have the opportunity to work with and support every day. 


As the new Superintendent, my top priority will be Equity, and building on the broader vision that began for our district in 2011. Equity in the delivery of our educational mission is essential in order to ensure that every student receives what they need every day. For our students to receive the educational experiences that address their individual needs, we must create healthy learning environments where all students are inspired and feel hopeful. To do so, we will continue to work to eliminate systemic inequities while reconstructing systems that have perpetuated marginalizing and debilitating beliefs in students.  


I know equity work requires engagement, leadership, partnership and collaboration. I look forward to collaborating with our families, students, staff and member district partners to create educational communities that uphold the fundamental values of human rights and racial equity.  We invite our families, students, and staff to work in partnership to co-construct our educational cultures of care so that every student is happy and experiences joy while learning. 

Please visit our Mission, Values and Equity page for more details about our equity commitment.
