A Message from our Superintendent

Families and Community Members of West Harvey-Dixmoor School District 147:

I am humbled and honored to serve as your next Superintendent of Schools!

As a leader, my belief is that it is important to understand that academic excellence is directly connected to all other influences that a child experiences. Our mission is to create a climate of excellence by empowering all students and stakeholders to attain their highest potential both academically and socially. Just as I want the best for my own children, I believe it is my duty to make decisions that are in the best interests of the children that I serve.

Through collaboration, communication, and commitment, I aim to create a collaborative trusting, relationship with staff; dependable, respectful, and open environment for parents; and a safe, relevant, and engaging environment for students.

I believe in commitment to integrity, education, and the District’s vision of creating excellence and empowering all. I look forward to working with you, as my efforts and energy are utilized to create experiences that motivate and inspire our students, as we prepare them to excel!

I look forward to building our partnership and working with you this year!
