LEADERSHIP
STATEMENT

Leadership of a district, learning community or program is a tremendous responsibility that should be undertaken with humility and integrity. To achieve the goals of fostering safe / supportive schools, effective communication, developing high quality programs, assuring fiscal stability, and supporting quality staff development requires a focus towards supporting others.

EDUCATION PHILOSOPHY

As an educator, I view the application of knowledge as being equally important as the acquisition of knowledge. K-12 educational programs have to guarantee rigor in the foundations of each field of study, provide application based learning experiences and assure equal access to participate in those same fields of study. Secondly, the social context of our schools has to profess the cultural values of the community while stretching its members to think broadly and inclusively.

CULTURALLY COMPETENT

Developed through a variety of experiences my cultural competency is the result of many years of work and inquiry. In my life and work experiences I have learned the skills necessary to interact successfully amongst many cultures. Through practices of being a focused listener, developing patience to think before acting, and keeping an open mind I have learned many fascinating things about the cultures we live amongst.
