I’m excited to serve as your superintendent. While I’ve had the pleasure of working with many of you during the more than two decades I’ve invested in North Kansas City Schools, I’d like to further introduce myself, as I look forward to making new friends and partnerships on behalf of our students.

I began my career in the St. Joseph School District. My wife, son, and I moved to Kansas City’s Northland in 2001, where I’ve had the pleasure of serving as principal at three of our district’s schools: Nashua, Crestview and Eastgate.

The future is bright for North Kansas City Schools. We are a growing district with a strong strategic direction, implemented by an outstanding group of educators. We continue to “work the plan” – being true to our mission of ensuring every student achieves his or her unique potential and thrives in an environment of rapid change. Doing what is best for kids remains at the forefront of the work we do every day.

Great things are happening daily in schools and classrooms across the district! Dedicated teachers and staff, along with district leadership, remain focused on student achievement and creating some of the best schools in the state. If you see me sharing the good news of North Kansas City Schools and all that our future holds, please come introduce yourself. I look forward to celebrating the continued success of our students with you.

Have a great school year!
