Dear Frankfort 157-C School District Community,  


I am honored and excited to begin serving as the superintendent for Frankfort School District 157-C Schools beginning on July 1Throughout my time as the principal of Chelsea Intermediate School, and in my transition to the superintendency, I have learned that our teachers, staff, and families are truly dedicated to ensuring our students have an exceptional educational experience. In addition, our FSD 157-C School Board has continuously shown its commitment and investment in our school district by always seeking to provide the best opportunities for learning and engagement, extracurricular activities, fiscal responsibility, and first-class facilities for our students to learn and grow. For these reasons I am thrilled to serve our school community and look forward to a strong partnership in a collective effort to continue the Frankfort School District 157-C Tradition of Excellence.  


As we look forward to next year, our objectives include ensuring our school programming maximizes the academic achievement and personal growth of all FSD 157-C students. In addition, we will remain diligent in our efforts to support the social and emotional development of our students. We want every student, regardless of where they are in their educational journey from kindergarten to eighth grade, to love being in our schools and learning from our staff each day. 


It is my goal to be communicative through our work in order to grow the trust of the student, staff, and family community of our school district. We will communicate to the community through newsletters and email announcements, which will be available and archived on the superintendent webpage linked hereOur FSD 157-C School Board meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month. Important information on meeting dates, board agendas, meeting minutes, and press releases can always be found on our District website linked here.  Our “Learning Connection” newsletter allows us to take a deeper dive into District happenings and will continue to be sent out to all mailing addresses in the community throughout the yearFurthermore, we will seek to celebrate the successes of our students and faculty, while highlighting our community involvement, through social media.

Finally, our building and District administrators also work to serve the school community in partnership with our families. We will strive to engage our school community for the betterment of our students by seeking input from our families and staff throughout our decision-making processes. As the superintendent, please know I am available to support you and your child, and am happy to speak with you via email, phone, or in-person meeting.
