I am honored and humbled to have been given the privilege of serving the Downtown School. I was born and raised in this great city and it’s where my wife and I have chosen to raise our two children. I’ve loved seeing our city grow and change into what it is today and am proud to now have a small role in shaping its next population and leaders.
What you are getting in me is a positive and energetic leader focused on continuous improvement and reflection in a supportive environment. I face each day with the zeal it deserves and will attempt to illuminate the positive aspects of our roles so loud that it will be difficult to hear anything else.
My teaching experience was based on differentiating and individualizing education so that all learners would be successful. My experience leading an IB school the previous 3 years have only deepened my desire to develop curriculum that meets the needs of all students and nurture lifelong, productive, and engaged learners prepared to meet the changing needs of our shared future. I have been pleasantly surprised how well the foundational concepts of IB and PBL correlate. I look forward to learning and leading under the Project Based Learning framework and will do everything in my power to strengthen and illuminate its importance.
I look forward to forming positive and productive relationships with all of you to continue the great things happening at DTS.
