Superintendent's Message

It is my pleasure to welcome the Southampton School Community to a New Year. 

Clearly, the past twelve months have presented tremendous challenges to our traditional means of schooling.  The dedication, creativity, and professionalism, of all of our school staff coupled with conscientious, and supportive, caring parents, have allowed Southampton to keep as many students in school as possible. 

The Southampton Board of Education has worked tirelessly to build an excellent educational organization.  My brief but critical role with all of you will be to work to maintain a safe, healthy, effective, and efficient learning environment for all of our students.

As we move ahead, I’ll be working with the staff and Board to achieve our school climate, academic, and technology goals. We will continue to navigate any challenges with persistence, and a focus on what is best for the children of Southampton.  Finally, we will plan together to maintain the investment you have made in our schools and our educational program as we transition a new full time Superintendent by July, 2021.

My door is open and I welcome any opportunity to work with you for the benefit of the children of Southampton.
