To The Daily Sun,
An open letter to Gilford residents:
I am the new superintendent of schools for the Gilford School District. Some of you may remember me as the Gilford High School assistant principal from 2003-2006. I learned a great deal in the three years serving the high school students from the towns of Gilmanton and Gilford. I departed Gilford High School at the end of the 2006 school year to become a high school principal. After serving in that role, I was an assistant superintendent, a position I occupied for the past three years. I have fond memories of my time in Gilford and am excited to return to this great school district.
While working in public education for the past 21 years, it is clear to me that community support for education makes a difference. I initially came to this school district because this community cares about its children and the schools they attend. This support was an important reason why I returned. The Gilford community and its three schools have a great reputation throughout the state for strong academics, top-notch performing arts programs, and outstanding athletic teams.
I am looking forward to getting to know staff and community members and building relationships as we define our work and establish goals to move the Gilford School District toward continuous improvement. Relationships are an important part of my new role as superintendent. As Gilford community members, your input is important in helping me learn about our community and working collaboratively to ensure that we provide a quality education to all students. There is nothing we cannot overcome if we work together.
