I am thrilled and honored to serve as the interim superintendent for the Monroe School District for the 2022-23 school year while the school board works through the process of selecting a permanent superintendent. 

I am a career educator who began as a special education teacher. Throughout my career I have also served as an elementary school principal, director of curriculum & assessment & learning technology, executive director of teaching & learning, and superintendent. In January 2020, I retired from Mukilteo School District where I served as superintendent for 16.5 years. 

In July, I learned that Monroe was in need of an interim superintendent for the 2022-23 school year after the recruiting firm, hired by the school board, reached out to me. I was happily retired and not looking to return to the workforce; however, with five family members of my own enrolled in Monroe schools, I was willing to consider stepping in to help. The decision to apply, however, was not only about family.

I applied for this position, and was ultimately selected by the school board, because I continue to believe that the education of our children is the most fundamental and important work in the world. I know the Monroe School District has incredible staff talent, who I know share this same belief, and I am passionate about supporting them in meeting the needs of all of our students.    

Thank you for welcoming me and I look forward to serving our community.
