Office of the Superintendent

Great things are happening inside and outside the classrooms at Ball-Chatham!  As your new Superintendent, I am proud to join a school community that values the success of each and every student and which holds high expectations for its students, parents, guardians, teachers, staff, and community. I have been welcomed by many of you already and look forward to meeting many more of you in the coming weeks. 

The smell of a new box of crayons, picking out the first day of school outfit and, for our older students, finding out class teachers and walking schedules are familiar signs that school is about to begin. As a new school year approaches, I am excited to watch staff and students return to the halls of each building enthusiastic to engage in rich and rigorous learning experiences.  My focus for this new school year is to ensure that our schools are safe and secure, that our facilities are well maintained, and most importantly that our students learn and grow in an environment of empathy, compassion, and inclusivity. 

I invite you to help make this year unique and special for our students by becoming involved.  It is my hope that families become active partners with us in the important work of educating, preparing, and inspiring each student to successfully transition from grade to grade, graduate, and be ready for life and learning pursuits after high school.  I look forward to our joint partnership to benefit each student this year.

Great things are happening in our district and I feel very fortunate to be a part of an organization with so many excellent, caring, dedicated staff members who place students first every day!
