My focus is committed to providing the very best experience for all of the students through educational opportunities, along with a great athletic program.  Our commitment to educating the whole child will take the partnership between the community and our school families. I am very passionate about the education of the boys and girls of Claiborne County and will bring stability, reliability, and accountability back into the district.  For me, failure is not an option.

One of my primary focuses will be to revise the mission, vision, and goals for the District, with staff, students, and parents to reflect all that the Claiborne County School District stands for and is willing to provide for the students and families.

On behalf of the Board of Education, we, a unit of six, realize that each of us has the same vision and goal for the children, and that is to ensure a quality education for all students, which will afford them an opportunity to excel and become a productive part of society.  We, further as a team, will direct the maximum resources to summarize the essentials to ensure the growth and development of the whole child.

Realizing that parents and students are filled with the excitement of school opening, I encourage parents to reach to your child’s teacher and introduce yourself, join the PTA and, if at any point during the school year, you have any concerns, my door, as well as the principals’, is always open.  Although I operate under the open door policy, I strongly encourage parents to come to the office on each Thursday as I reinstate the “Superintendent’s Talk” piece of my administration.  However, the name is being modified to say “TALKING TO THE SUPERINTENDENT.”

In the event that you are having issues with instruction or staff at the school level, please be reminded that all concerns if this nature must first be presented to the principal.  However, if no resolution is presented, then contact the superintendent.  Please feel free to give us a call, send us an email or set up a meeting if you wish to discuss anything that’s cannot wait until this appointed time.

Through our collective teamwork, I know we can accomplish great things because together… We are the Claiborne County School District!  I’m looking forward to a productive and rewarding school year.
