• As I approach my 30th year in education, I reflect on how much it has changed over the years.  One thing that has not changed is my commitment to trying to identify what it is that students need and then finding a direction to point them so that they can experience success. 

    As part of the Carter Nation, what most impresses me is the passion that students, parents and staff members have for their community.   I look forward to taking the Class of 2025 toward their dream of graduation and becoming their best selves.
