A FRESH PERSPECTIVE
I am driven by my values of equity and inclusion, communication and transparency, and by my commitment to excellent public schools that meet the needs of a diverse student population. I believe students', educators', and families' voices need to be a part of the decision making processes that will impact their work and experiences.
My vision for the Northampton Public Schools is a district where all students are engaged, can grow to their full potential, and are respected and supported for who they are; where students are taught to think critically about the messages they receive from society and are empowered to create meaningful change in their schools and communities; where educators are valued and receive the full support they need; where innovation and creativity are fostered on every level; where policies are innovative and administered thoughtfully; where diverse families are drawn because of the high caliber of educational and co-curricular programs; where we attract and retain the best teachers; where diversity is celebrated and equity is fully realized.
