Welcome to Lakota Local Schools!

Everything WE do is designed to create a future-ready, student-centered learning experience for every single student. 

As interim superintendent, I am committed to supporting the mission statement of Lakota Local Schools through my decisions and actions, just as I have done in my previous role.

I came to Lakota in 1997 as a math teacher at Liberty Junior School. After serving as an assistant principal at Lakota East High School and principal back at Liberty, I was named assistant superintendent in 2012. I also briefly served as interim superintendent during the 2016-2017 school year. I am proud to once again serve our students and staff in this capacity.

Every day, 17,500 students walk through our doors to receive an education. Not just any education: a Lakota education. Our teachers, staff and administrators are committed to providing the best education possible to our students through innovative, personalized instruction. 

Lakota is my home. I choose Lakota not only professionally, but also personally. My wife and I chose Lakota many years ago as the place we wanted to raise our children because of the excellent education they would receive. With two Lakota graduates and two students still in our schools, I wouldn’t have it any other way. 

I am committed to all of our kids, all of our families and all of our staff… just as I have been for the last 25 years. I am proud to be a part of Lakota and look forward to continuing to move our district forward.
