Dear Parents or Guardians and Residents of the Proctor District,

My overall goal is to foster an environment that embraces our mission of empowering all learners to achieve in a respectful, innovative, and inclusive environment. I am committed to this mission because to provide educational growth, we need to understand that each of our students succeeds in varying degrees based on their abilities and strengths. Additionally, we need to provide safe environments in which everyone feels welcomed for who they are. Imagine the powerful message we all could send by promoting the ideals of respect, innovation, and inclusion. Achieving this goal requires an active campaign to involve students in their education and inspire them to be engaged in their education. It also involves families, teachers, and administrators working together to help our students reach their fullest potential. You have my assurance that I will work on your behalf to champion this kind of environment throughout our District, and I welcome your partnership.

Together we can advance our school vision: "We Educate, Engage, and Inspire.” I am always willing to meet with you on any of your concerns about our schools. Together we can do great things.

I am excited to continue providing excellent education throughout our District, and I look forward to meeting you as the year progresses. I especially welcome you to stop at school to visit with me or to share your thoughts about our schools. Feel free to contact me via email or phone.
