I am excited to be entering my second year as the superintendent of the Boardman Local Schools. This is my 16th year serving our school district. I started as the principal of Boardman High School in 2002 and served in that capacity for 11 years. It was a tremendous experience working alongside a powerhouse of high school educators and I was amazed by the student passion and academic focus. In 2013, I took over as Director of Operations. This administrative change allowed me the see the business side of a school district and added to my development as a district leader. Spending those years in a district administrative position reaffirmed that the positive culture that I had witnessed in the high school was entrenched in all seven of our school buildings. In August of 2016, I accepted the challenge of leading the school district and was appointed superintendent.
In these upcoming years, the focus of the Boardman Local Schools will be to:
As we honor the past, we must constantly plan and adapt for the future. Last year we established a new vision statement, “together we transform lives through academics, athletics, and the arts”. These transformations must be adaptable and diverse as we create the next 100 years of Boardman Excellence.
