Dear Auburn Union School District and Auburn Community:
I am incredibly honored to serve as the new Superintendent of the Auburn Union School District and look forward to serving the Auburn community. What attracted me most about Auburn Union is the vision, “We stand together to place each child at the heart of every decision.” This vision is my true north and is derived from my most deeply held beliefs, values, and the principles by which I lead. Auburn Union School District is the fit I have been seeking.
Auburn holds fond childhood memories for me including floating down the American River, hiking in the Sierra and picking wild blackberries at my aunt and uncle’s house. I will continue to connect with these values and the community as we grow AUSD into a destination district. Parents seeking progressive education with an emphasis on curriculum, instruction, STEAM teaching, blended learning models and project-based learning will choose AUSD for these reasons.
The growth within AUSD will be coupled with community involvement and input. I welcome ideas, brainstorms and action as a means to move forward together collectively. I am excited to embark on this journey with our team and community at AUSD.
