    Greetings Cohasset Families,

    Welcome to Cohasset Public Schools. We are committed to fostering collaboration between students, teachers and families in an environment that educates and supports the "whole child" while ensuring students strive for maximum perofmance. “This is important. You can do it. I won’t give up on you” (Saphier & Gower, 1997) are three key messages that guide our work together. As Superinendent I will strive to support all stakeholders to thrive in this exciting learning environment.

    Some of My Educational Beliefs and Vision Points:

    • Supporting a student-centered approach throughout the District
    • Educating the whole child and prioritizing Social-Emotional Learning (SEL)
    • Promoting trust and transparency with all stakeholders
    • Centering all of our work on a foundation of strong relationships
    • Celebrating staff and student accomplishments
    • Encouraging staff enthusiasm
    • Increasing inclusion, empathy, bullying prevention, safety and cultural competency
    • Increasing an inclusive and flexible approach to special education, which will reduce stigma and celebrate diversity
    • Inspiring Project-Based Learning (PBL) opportunities for all staff and students
    • Creating collective teacher efficacy through collaboration
    • Collaborating with community-based organizations to improve the education of the students
    • Promoting systems-thinking and strategic practices that build capacity to fulfill our District’s Strategic Plan
    • Increasing the collaboration and communication within the District Leadership Team
    • Utilizing data to expand teaching materials and improve pedagogy and tiered supports
    • Revising and creating systems and protocols throughout the District
    • Integrating meaningful technology and instructional pedagogy that effectively uses technology
    • Cultivating innovative learning practices that foster communication, creativity, collaboration and critical thinking
    • Listening to the voices of all stakeholders and involving them in decision-making processes
    • Eliciting stakeholder input regarding vision for the Cohasset Public Schools
    • Continuing the advancement of elementary literacy and numeracy
    • Promoting proactive and clear communication at all levels

    I am honored and humbled to continue my passionate belief in students, teachers and families in the role of Cohasset Superintendent. I am proud to work in such a wonderful community.
