Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year and our website! This is a resource that I hope you find informative and helpful.
I am excited and honored to have the opportunity to serve as Minneota’s Superintendent! This is a special place, and I am fortunate to be a tiny part of our school district and community. I look forward to continuing to meet our students, families, and community members and supporting everyone's efforts to the best of my ability.
Being in public education for 33 years, I was drawn to the programs, services, opportunities, and initiatives that Minneota Public Schools provides – the district has earned an excellent reputation and is known for both academic achievement and success in activities programs. I continue to focus my (and our collective) efforts to build on our past and tradition yet also examine areas where we might become even better.
Our Mission is “A community in continuous pursuit of excellence.” Although excellence might be defined in multiple ways by different people, we can often recognize it when we see, hear about, or experience it. It is this pursuit of excellence that I look forward to collaborating with our stakeholders to achieve.
I find our Vision of “Minneota Public Schools is a partnership of staff, family, and community promoting lifelong learning in an everchanging world.” inspiring. While the whole statement is important, I am particularly drawn to partnership, lifelong learning, and everchanging, as those are three powerful phrases. I am excited to collaborate with our students, families, staff, and the community to help accomplish our vision.
I am proud to serve our excellent school district and look forward to working with everyone to provide the highest quality education for our students and excellent opportunities for everyone associated with Minneota Public Schools. I invite - and welcome - questions, comments, ideas, or concerns that you might have.
