    Dear Lyle Students, Staff, Parents and Community Members,

    I’m so very excited to join Lyle Community Schools as your next Superintendent! I was brought up in a family of educators, and I’ve devoted four decades of my life to teaching and serving in school administration. My experiences include being a classroom teacher, reading specialist, principal, executive director of curriculum, instruction and assessment, assistant superintendent, and a consultant to district teams working to improve instructional practices and culture.

    These diverse and demanding roles have contributed to my perspective and appreciation for the opportunity of being the Lyle Superintendent. This is, without a doubt, an enormous responsibility. But I am well-prepared to lead this staff -- with the support of parents, community and school board -- to meet the high expectations that the community expects and our students deserve. 

    My guiding principle as your Superintendent is based on the belief that every child can and will attain the education and skills necessary to achieve their dreams of a meaningful and bright future.  I look forward to working collaboratively with our parents, students, staff and community to continue to make Lyle a safe, caring and inspiring place for our students to learn.

    It has been my pleasure during the last few weeks to spend time in the school and community.  I am excited to find a positive culture that promotes student learning. The gains made to date are impressive. Our school must continue to be a place where students are engaged, challenged to meet the standards necessary for college and/or a career, and where fun is definitely encouraged.  Students must be given opportunities to develop productive and sustaining relationships and to be encouraged to be productive citizens.  

    I am excited about the work ahead of us in Lyle. Together we will continue to ensure our students receive the highest quality education possible.  If I can be of any assistance to you, please feel free to contact me at 509-365-2191 or email me at
