Dear Rutland City Schools Students, Parents, Staff and Community Members,
I am honored and excited to have been selected as your Superintendent of Rutland City Public Schools. One of the primary reasons I chose to accept this position is the commitment you have to cultivating a passionate, diverse and resilient community. That commitment can be seen through the success the students in your school district enjoy.
You have a nationally recognized high school and highly sought after elementary and middle schools. It is our job to ensure that we maintain the success you have enjoyed under retiring Superintendent Mary Moran and find ways to improve. It is my privilege to join you in that work.
To me, that work means that we must have a commitment to the idea that all students will learn and all students must learn. We should teach all kids like they are the one who will cure cancer. This doesn’t mean all students need to go to medical school, but we should teach all subjects and all classes as though they might. If our educators teach to that standard, we can change the trajectory of Rutland, Vermont, this nation and the world.
