Much of my first two years as Superintendent of Burlington Community School District have been spent listening to and learning about this community that bleeds purple and gray.

I’ve heard from administrators, teachers, support staff, students, parents and other community members about what makes our schools great and what we could do to make them even better, and I look forward to continuing and building upon these conversations.

In addition to remaining accessible, my priorities include investing in STEM by adding a STEM rotation at the elementary buildings; expanding learning opportunities at the high school, such as by adding a Public Safety CTE pathway; increasing student participation in a growing number of extracurriculars; and continuing to reduce barriers for our students and families.

It’s been so exciting to see the talent of our teachers and staff members. Every time I walk into a building, I am struck by the level of kindness, tremendous effort and commitment that staff have for our Grayhounds as they prepare them for life outside of our classroom walls.

I take great pride in our district — so much so that my blood now runs purple and gray, too.

Go, Grayhounds!
