Superintendent's Message

Dear North Warren Regional Community,

It was my honor to serve as the Principal of NWR for 5 years and now it is my honor to lead the District as your Superintendent. When I arrived in July 2017, I was excited to work with the students, leadership team, staff, and parents in the North Warren Community. We started a variety of new programs and initiatives, maintained a sense of a small school environment, and watched as our students thrived in school and post-high school. And then, the world stopped.

The entire school community of leaders, teachers, support staff, students, parents, and all members of the community endured the trials and tribulations of a global pandemic. We were thrust into an environment in which none of us were fully prepared. Then again, how could anyone have prepared for this? Yet, we made it through with ups and downs and now we are back on track to continue the great things at NWR.

How are we going to accomplish this?

My vision for NWR is that our school community will be a school that works in partnership with the parents, community members, and staff FOR the benefit of every student. Students are our number one priority. I believe that parents and community members will be Integral partners In the development of programs, enhancing our facility, and establishment of a community school. Together we will prepare our students for their world and NWR students will be proud to be Patriots.

I look forward to working together over the next few years. I am truly humbled by the opportunity and excited to see what we can accomplish together.
