Dear West Liberty Community School District:
Welcome to a new school year full of new learning opportunities for each of our students.I hope that you enjoyed your summer and had time to unwind and relax before our new school year began.I am extremely proud and honored to have been selected by the West Liberty Community School District Board of Education as your new Superintendent.
I am looking forward to a wonderful school year full of learning and excitement, acknowledging our long-standing traditions and continuing our culture of excellence.A key area of focus is ensuring that all students have the opportunity to receive equitable access to a rigorous and high-quality curriculum.We can only make this possible by continuing to work together, building strong partnerships with a student-centered approach.
My mission as your new superintendent is driven by my belief that all children can learn. Ensuring that our students receive appropriate academic learning experiences with diverse opportunities, social emotional support; and maintaining a supportive partnership with our diverse community are at the core of my mission.
As a school district, we believe it is important to set strategic goals, focus actions and set attainable commitments, for continuous improvement serving as a foundation for our vision and strategic plan.At West Liberty Community School District, we are also united by a purpose.A purpose that is at the core of everything we do and why we exist. This purpose is to partner with our families, staff and community to prepare students for full and productive lives, becoming empowered citizens here and around the world.If we live this purpose, we will reach our strategic efforts; improving student engagement and learning, developing students’ capacities and skills for success in life, and creating a 21st century learning environment.
I will work closely with our West Liberty Community School District Board of Education to establish a partnership to serve our students and opportunities for staff that reflect our core values.My promise is to empower and support our community, continuing our work together, leading by example, and embracing the traditions of West Liberty Community School District.
