Shelton's Superintendent



I am honored to serve as Shelton School District’s superintendent. As an educator, I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to help shape the lives of students and recognize the tremendous responsibility that comes with the job. Whether leading at the classroom, school, or district level, I am focused on creating warm, engaging learning environments that support the diverse needs of students. 

The Shelton School District has a strong foundation and I’m excited to capitalize further on the momentum to improve the academic achievement of all students.

Planning for the Future of Shelton Schools

Over the last five years, Shelton School District has worked hard on our Vision and Goal of 100% graduation by 2022, and due to our collective efforts, we raised our graduation rate. Now is a critical time to develop a strategic plan that will influence the skills, experiences, and character we instill in our 4,300 students over the next five years and beyond.

A strategic plan is the guiding document that helps focus the goals of the district as we do all our planning. There are many ways students can be supported and different types of programs and goals that we could lay out for our schools, but it’s important that the district is aligned to the priorities of families, staff, students, and the community. We don't want the district to develop a plan for the future without taking into consideration what has worked and what hasn't worked.

While 100% graduation continues to be our focus and goal for our district, we know that the way we get there has changed. We have learned a lot in the past five years about how to best serve students, and we know you have too.
