Welcome to Robbinsdale Area Schools!
I am pleased to welcome you and your family to our destination district that is high performing and highly diverse in our pursuit of excellence, looking through the lens of equity.
I have been honored to be the Robbinsdale Area Schools Superintendent since August 2015. Before becoming Superintendent in Robbinsdale Area Schools, I was the Chief Academic Officer in the Atlanta Public School system. Additionally, I spent four years (2010-14) as the Superintendent of Saginaw Public Schools, a district in Michigan with 7,500 students (15 schools, including 10 elementary schools, one middle school and three high schools). I also served four years as the Executive Director of Secondary Leaders (and as a high school principal) in the Beloit Public Schools system in Wisconsin. Prior to this, I served as a high school principal in the Columbus Public Schools in Ohio.
My experience also includes one year as a middle school principal, two years as an associate principal at a high school in the Beloit Public Schools and one year as an associate principal at a high school in Madison, Wisconsin. My teaching career started in 1989 at Beloit Memorial High School. I earned my Master of Science in Educational Administration and Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
