Superintendent's Message

I am so excited to have been given the opportunity to be the Superintendent of Schenevus Central School. I wanted to take this time to officially introduce myself and let you know a little more about me, personally, as well as my experience in education.  

I have been an educator for almost 25 years and have enjoyed every minute of my career. I am so lucky to have the opportunity to influence and encourage young minds and help them on their educational path, it is what I feel, the best profession in the world. I started my career student teaching at Unatego as a 6-12 business teacher and was then lucky enough to teach at Unatego for 14 years, as well as be the Special Education Director, during my last year and a half. After leaving Unatego, I became the 7-12 Principal at Deposit Central School and served in that role for almost 7 years. I learned a lot about administration and effective instruction while at Deposit and am grateful for my time there. 

I currently live in Bainbridge, am married and fortunate to share 7 children with my husband. Three of our children are in college, 2 in middle school and 2 in high school. 

Throughout the interview process at Schenevus, I witnessed this sense of pride and commitment that staff, students and the community have in their school. I have experienced it firsthand over the past few days, as each of the faculty and staff, parents, students and residents I have met have been extremely welcoming and helpful. I have only worked in small districts, which is one of the reasons I was drawn to Schenevus. There are a lot of positives to working in and attending a small community school. I am impressed with the programs and services in place at Schenevus, and I am committed to building upon and strengthening these practices to ensure great opportunities for our students to explore their interests and find their true passions.

My passion and the reason I do what I do, is to maintain and grow a rigorous teaching and learning environment that provides every student with a sense of belonging while helping students to grow intellectually, emotionally and socially. It is critical to every student's success that they graduate from high school with all the skills they will need to pursue and achieve their goals and dreams.

While serving as your Superintendent of Schools, I plan to be accessible, and maintain an open-door communication policy. I encourage and welcome any questions, comments or concerns you have about our school. I also invite you to share with me all the great things that make up Schenevus and hope that you will stop in and see me over time.
