A Message from the Superintendent
Hello. It is an honor for me to serve as Superintendent of the Gobles Public Schools. The Gobles Public Schools is a great place for the young people of the school community to gain the knowledge and skills required to help them to be successful in life. I know this to be true from the conversations that I have had with staff and community members, the programming in place, as well as the data that shows how our students perform on assessments. We have seen good success at our schools and that is directly connected to active and strong parental involvement, a dedicated and talented staff, and a supportive community. Yet the current reality can and will be improved. It is important that ALL our children have the knowledge and skills that will allow them to be competitive with any group of students around the state, country, and world. We must be committed to continuously advancing the core mission of teaching and learning.
As I begin my tenure as your Superintendent of Schools, I want to share with you some ideas about the future for Gobles Public Schools. My leadership will put the PUBLIC back into Gobles Public Schools. I will ask the school community to come together and work on behalf of our children. They deserve no less than the best that we can give them. I feel that all of us can and need to be leaders and learners. I believe that all of us are stronger than one of us and that all of us are smarter than one of us. My leadership will be inclusive and will continue the process of strategic planning as well as put a new emphasis on data and how we use data to improve upon what we do. Our work will be guided by research and the belief that every student is capable of attaining high levels of educational achievement in preparation for meeting the rigorous demands of a global world.
I am fortunate to be part of a school community that approaches the important function of K-12 public schooling with optimism and a tremendous sense of possibility. I look forward to working with you and this wonderful school community to provide the best educational experiences for our youth. Together we can and will make a difference.
