Greetings From Our New Superintendent:

It is with great pleasure that I have been chosen to serve as Superintendent for Marshall County Schools.   My mission as your Superintendent is to build a school system with a focus on educating kids and building communities.  As educators we need to work as a team to accelerate success both academically and behaviorally for all students.  I have used my experience in education to shape a few guiding principles which I believe can be the foundation for continued success in Marshall County Schools.

  1. Communication is key. In order to build positive school cultures there needs to be open lines of communication and collaboration between all constituents.
  2. Research, understand, and follow policy.  We have revised all county policies to ensure that they are aligned to federal and state policy.  A strong push will be evident throughout the year on policy education and implementation.
  3. Teaching and learning should shape our daily work.  Our business is to educate the whole child.  We do this through direct instruction, active engagement, and implicit feedback.
  4. Communities are the backbone of our system.  School and local communities are the structure on which our children learn and grow intellectually, emotionally, and socially.  Strong communities build successful students.
  5. It takes a village.  Service and professional personnel are equally important in building a successful school system.   We must work together and keep children at the forefront of all decisions.

I look forward to visiting classrooms to see the creative, innovative ways our children are engaged in learning.  By working together, everyone in Marshall County has a role in making a positive difference in the lives of students and families.  I look forward to a great school year!
