Welcome to Hot Springs School District!
I am honored to have been selected as your new superintendent, and humbled by the amount of faith extended to me as I take on the responsibility of leading this organization. In the process of becoming your superintendent, I shared with parents, students, staff, and community members my beliefs and commitments to public education. As an educational leader, I believe learning is not an isolated event within our classroom walls. Rather it is a lifelong process of academic, physical, and emotional growth enriched through our experiences and relationships. Hence, collaboration, communication, and reflection become essential components of a successful school district and community.
The District's mission Work, Learn, Achieve, Celebrate echoes these thoughts and provides a context to measure our growth this year as we focus on: increased student achievement, innovative instructional practices, enhanced parental involvement, stronger community partnerships, and effective organizational practices. Strong schools create strong communities and a stronger local economy.
Working and learning together will allow us to achieve excellence together ensuring our students are ready to become successful, productive citizens who are critical thinkers, creative problem-solvers, and effective communicators, who exhibit strong moral character. Along the way there will be many opportunities to celebrate our efforts. We hope you will celebrate with us.
It is my wish as your superintendent to build on the success of yesterday and today, to empower us for the challenges of tomorrow. Here's to a great school year. Go Bison!
