"Everybody can be great... because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love." Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

I am constantly looking for ways to learn and grow. I share the zest for discovery — both personal and professional — with District 142's Administrative Team. I think continuing to expand our knowledge, exploring new ays of doing things, and ensuring we are staying on the cutting edge of educational research and best practices, makes us better administrators. But this kind of development makes us better to leaders too.
