It is with great pride that I write this letter of introduction to you as your new High School Principal. I have been dedicated to the field of education for over forty-five years. During my career, I was a sixth grade English teacher, Physical Educator and a coach of many athletic teams in sports like football, baseball, softball and basketball. Since 1990, I have served as a middle school principal, a high school principal and a superintendent of schools. I feel honored to serve as the instructional leader of the high school and look forward to working with the Oxford community to provide exceptional learning experiences for our students. As your principal, I look forward each day to strengthening relationships that I will begin to build with all our students, families, teachers and talented staff.
My goal is to ensure that all our students are healthy, happy and safe in order for them to thrive and reach their highest potential. Along with the faculty and staff, I am deeply committed to making a positive difference in the lives of our students and fostering a positive school culture built on personal character and social justice. Beyond the rigors of their academic program, it is our aim to instill within each student the essential principles of pride, respect, and responsibility so they will become productive and contributing members of our increasingly global society.
It is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors feels valued and accepted. High School is a time of charge, challenge, exploration and success. Our students need our support and guidance more than ever to develop the necessary skills to compete with and be successful in our ever-changing world.
I look forward to immersing myself completely in our school and the Community. You will find me in the hallways, classrooms and at school events.
Please do not hesitate to call me if you have any questions, concerns or ideas you would like to share. My door will always be open.
High School Principal
