Dear Itasca Families,

I am grateful to be chosen to serve as the superintendent of Itasca School District 10. I am truly impressed by the commitment to quality education displayed by Itasca community members. As a community you have much to be proud of. Over the last few months, as I have learned about Itasca District 10, I can clearly see parents who care deeply for their children, teachers who are passionate about teaching and students that love to learn. The schools are simply incredible!

As a parent of three school-aged children and husband to a kindergarten teacher, I appreciate what it means to have confidence in your child’s school. I want all of our students to feel that same confidence as learners. In serving as superintendent, I look forward to continuing what has made Itasca 10 special. I will continue to lead our schools to assure that the Itasca 10 philosophy is honored:

In a cooperative effort, the Board of Education, faculty, staff, students, and community of Itasca School District 10 are dedicated to academic excellence and the cultivation of individual strengths and talents in a safe, supportive, collaborative environment where individual differences and respect for the rights of others guide school and community behavior.

I also look forward to working with you to continue to improve the schools in Itasca.  Please feel free to stop in the district office this summer to share your hopes with me. I will announce additional meet and greet times during the start of school if you are busy this summer. I look forward to personally meeting as many of our parents and students as possible throughout the year. My door is always open. I look forward to serving our students and you.
