Shelton's Superintendent



I am honored to serve as Shelton’s next superintendent. The community’s long-standing commitment to public education is what attracted me to Shelton. As I visited with stakeholders and toured the district, it was evident there was a focus on student achievement, pride in the schools, strong relationships amongst the School Board and staff, and instructional services designed to meet the needs of the whole child. As I integrate into the Shelton community, I’m excited to build relationships and champion continued success for all students.

As an educator, I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to help shape the lives of students and recognize the tremendous responsibility that comes with the job. Whether leading at the classroom, school, or district level, I have focused on creating warm, engaging learning environments that support the diverse needs of students. During my experience as a senior leader in Seattle Public Schools, we were able to accelerate student learning and close achievement gaps for historically marginalized populations. We achieved this through building a districtwide focus on a few priorities, centering equity and excellence on a set of instructional moves and professional practices, and working in partnership with families and community-based organizations.

I’m a proud father of two kind, confident, and beautiful girls who fill my battery through our shared activities like running, golfing, board games, and cooking. When I have downtime, I’m usually working on home improvement projects. Raised in Washington, I also enjoy traveling across the state and cheering on local sports teams.

The Shelton School District has a strong foundation and I’m excited to capitalize further on the momentum to improve the academic achievement of all students.

I’m looking forward to meeting more students, families, and staff in the next school year!
