A Message from the Superintendent
September 21, 2016

I am honored, humbled and thrilled to have this opportunity to serve as Superintendent of a progressive and innovative school district like the Santa Fe Public Schools.  The staff and community have warmly welcomed me and I'm excited to take on the duties without the limitations of an interim superintendent.  We will put our focus on teaching and learning, it's at the heart of what we do.  All of our district’s functions and processes should be of support not an impediment to what happens in the classroom.  I believe we must continue to work on educating the whole child and ensure that our students are receiving a well-rounded education to prepare all students for a future that today we can't even begin to imagine. We must actively engage our families and community stakeholders in the education of the children of this community, the District can't do it alone.  Lastly, but importantly, we need to make sure that we support and value our employees.  They are the glue that holds SFPS together.  Collectively, I am confident we will be a flagship school district for New Mexico and the Nation.  Our students deserve our very best effort.  I thank the Board of Education for this amazing opportunity to serve. Santa Fe Public Schools, there IS a lot to love!
