Dear NBPS Parents, Caregivers, NBHS students, and NBPS staff members,
On July 1st, I officially signed my contract to become your next Interim Superintendent of North Brookfield Public Schools. I am extremely excited to accept this position and welcome the changes and challenges that face our district and community in the coming years. For those of you whom I do not know yet, this past year I served in the role of Principal at the Jr-Sr High School.
A little about me, I have been an educator for twenty three years with the last sixteen in administration working in roles ranging from Athletic Director, Assistant Principal, and Principal. During my time in education, my philosophy on teaching and learning supports that all students can achieve at high levels; preserving traditions while embracing diversity; and supporting growth for both students and staff holistically. Additionally, our school district needs to be a place where both academic and personal excellence is an expectation for ALL students. We envision a district where students, staff, and families work together and take ownership in developing and maintaining a robust student centered learning environment.
On a personal note, I am an avid runner, cyclist, and angler. I live in Worcester with my wife, Emily (an elementary school teacher) and our dog, Lina. I am the proud father of three children; Molly, Michael, and new baby, Violet.
In early fall 2022, I plan to initiate a district wide strategic planning exercise. Through this process, all stakeholders (students, staff members, families, and members of the school committee) will have an opportunity to examine and revise our district vision, mission, and identify priorities and goals for the entire district moving forward. This work will help articulate our district and school improvement plants for the next three to four years. In the meantime, I will be holding informal "coffee and donuts" meetings every Wednesday morning from 9-10 am through the end of August (excluding July 12th) in the NBES conference room. These casual drop in events will hopefully spur some informal conversations around district improvement and your child or children's education.
North Brookfield Public Schools have a long standing commitment to excellence. To that end, the faculty and staff work hard to create a broad range of opportunities for students to explore their interests, discover their potential, and achieve their goals. As a community, we encourage each other to work hard; try new things, and to learn, grow, and reflect on our mistakes as we push each other towards new successes. One of my goals throughout the upcoming school year will be to coordinate communication with our building and district leaders to all of you about the exciting events that are happening throughout the district all the time. At any time, feel free to contact me by email at email@example.com or in my office at 508-867-9821.
Wishing everyone a fantastic remainder of the summer and I am looking forward to our continued work for the students of North Brookfield Public Schools!
