Tallmadge City Schools
February 1, 2021
When I started at Tallmadge over 10 years ago, I created an email signature that read “I help students succeed.” The phrase has remained unchanged on the bottom of my emails ever since. Today, as I begin this journey as Superintendent, it now reads “We help students succeed.” We, the faculty, staff, parents, coaches, mentors, and community members of Tallmadge working together to help our students thrive.
Every day counts. Good days, like invested money and productive habits, compound to create great success. Our job, every one of us, is to help our students have good days -- one after another. Days when they are engaged, learning, building will, developing skills, exceeding their own expectations, and learning new things about themselves. Days when they feel safe, cared for, and respected.
The enormity of this job is not lost on me. I have a great responsibility to lead our district to ensure the ultimate success of our students and staff. This challenge will inspire me, every day, to make decisions that support our district’s mission and vision.
This is a great time to be a part of Tallmadge City Schools. Thanks to amazing community support, our facilities are unparalleled. Our faculty and staff have gone above and beyond on a daily basis to engage students through unconventional means during the pandemic. Our students have shown resilience during circumstances no other modern generation has faced, consistently shining through the adversity. The passion and strength of our school district has led us to the position of success we enjoy today.
We share a common goal for our students – to equip and prepare them for the demands of the 21st century no matter their career path or choice. I look forward to celebrating our wins together and rolling up our sleeves to get to the hard but incredibly important work of educating students. Tallmadge City Schools is a special place, and I am honored to carry on the tradition of excellence.
