Over my career of 45 years in education, I have worked in many school districts in our state. I have served in the superintendent's position for the past 27 years. Some of the schools in which I served were Eudora, Gillett, Carlisle, Barton, England, Watson Chapel, Mount Ida, Jefferson Prep and Ridgeway Christian Schools. I am married to my lovely wife Tammie. We have four grown children and 6 grand kids -all girls! Our daughter, Becca, is an RN and is returning this weekend from New York where she has been working for 8 weeks in the emergency room helping every way she can. We will be so happy to have her back home.
Right now all our lives are being greatly affected by the Coronavirus Pandemic. Our normal life is no longer normal. They call it a new normal. The coronavirus epidemic has created a new way in which we have to do our daily routines. At the present time, we are planning on starting school at the regular time but that does not mean we will. We may also use various Methods of Instruction to meet the needs of the students. We want parents to know we definitely care about your children and will take every preventable measure to insure their safety. The principals are working extremely hard with their school leadership teams to deliver a quality educational program for your kids. We are trying to improve connectivity to every home by purchasing Hot Spot devices to allow internet capability for education to and from the home. We will probably be delivering a blended educational program with both at home and face to face participation at school. We will keep you informed. I ask you to support us in our efforts.
I am very exciting about being here. I hope we can raise expectations and through TEAM- Together Everyone Achieves More- -make this a really great school year.
You are welcome to come by the office and visit with me at any time.
It is great to be a BEAR!!!
