As previously announced, I have been selected as the District’s new Superintendent, succeeding Dr. Katie McNamara upon her retirement. I am grateful for the opportunity to introduce myself and look forward to meeting our community when school resumes in January.
First, please know I am delighted to be joining this exceptional community. I spent the early years of my teaching career in San Diego County and have family here. Returning to San Diego feels like coming home. It means returning to a community rich in diversity and history, with families who place a high value on education and who are committed to being actively engaged in their child's education.
I am honored to be your next Superintendent, and will build on South Bay’s reputation as a district committed to the academic and social success of all students. I value the cultural and linguistic differences of our students and community as assets, that shoud be developed and celebrated. I look forward to collaborating with, and empowering, our community to work in partnership with our schools and District to reach our full potential.
I am excited to build upon the District's successes, advance promising initiatives, and continue to prioritize equity and excellence in education for every student. I believe there is no higher calling than to honor your trust in the South Bay team to provide a rigorous, meaningful, and engaging academic and social experience for all students.
I am excited and motivated to lead the District into its next chapter and look forward to collaborating with you to build on the District’s progress and to take our students, families, and schools to the next level. It is my honor to serve, and I thank you for your faith, confidence, and partnership.
