Dear Peninsula School District Community,
I am honored to have the privilege of serving as superintendent of the Peninsula School District. In this role I will be responsible for fulfilling the mission of our district and schools and improving learning for all children. This role provides essential leadership to obtain and develop quality staff, secure and manage funds and facilities, and encourage and maintain communication and trust between schools and the public.
The purpose of this entry plan is to provide a structure to support my transition as your superintendent as I listen to students, staff, families, and the greater Gig Harbor and Key Peninsula communities to:
- Build public trust and strengthen engagement in our schools;
- Update the needs, objectives, and work priorities of the Peninsula School District as outlined in the Peninsula Promise; and
- Identify the district’s strengths, improvement opportunities, and challenges.
I look forward to this opportunity to listen, learn, and partner with you. Together we can increase educational opportunities for all Peninsula School District students to succeed in school and beyond.
