The Superintendent's Desk

Dear Rochester community,

As the newly appointed Superintendent of the Rochester Area School District, I look forward to serving the district. I am committed to building trusting relationships as we work together to provide a quality education for our students.

I have had the opportunity to experience many aspects of the educational system. I began my career twenty-four years ago as a substitute teacher. Upon being hired as a classroom teacher, I taught math and English at the middle school level. I have also served in the building level administrative capacity as both an Assistant Principal and a Principal. For the past eight years, I have had the privilege of serving the entire community as the Assistant to the Superintendent.

Throughout my educational career, I worked with many qualified and passionate people. Through these relationships, I have shared with the staff and the school community in successfully implementing a Pennsylvania Pre-K Counts program, transitioning a school from self-contained classrooms for special education students to an inclusionary model, obtaining grant funding to provide one-to-one laptops for student use in core subject areas, and securing a three-million dollar grant to help completely transform a high school.

I am looking forward to working with the Rochester community. I hope to meet the educational stakeholders including parents, community members, business owners, students and teachers. As a school district, our goal is to utilize our resources to provide the best education possible and to help our students reach their goals.

Together we can build strong, productive citizens…one child at a time.
