Dear PSD community,
Thank you! As your new superintendent, I want my first official words to convey my gratitude and humility for the ability to partner with you. My family and I are incredibly excited to be in Northern Colorado and become a part of the PSD community. I look forward to listening, learning and leading with you. I can’t wait to meet you and hear your thoughts.
Poudre School District is strong – the product of your service, deep engagement and commitment to ensuring that we Educate... Every Child, Every Day. We have a significant responsibility to work as a team to ensure that our young people have the opportunities they deserve to grow into their best selves. Education is, after all, all about connections – those among students, teachers, staff, coaches, families and community members – that enrich and elevate the lives of others.
Public education changed my life trajectory and filled me with hope, love, confidence and a sense of belonging. It was where my beliefs solidified regarding the role of education in people’s lives. With our staff, I will promote collaboration and communication among all stakeholders in this community. We will strive to build and deliver exceptional educational experiences every day for all students.
With empathy and transparency, I will work with you, side by side, to make sure that our goals for students become a reality. This work will be rooted in three equity-centered commitments and core values: visionary district leadership, inclusive district culture and instructional excellence. Moving forward as a community, it will take all of us working in tandem to effectively allocate our time, people and resources in ways that align with the goal of achievement for all students.
I am excited to move forward together.
