I am extremely humbled and very excited to have the opportunity to be a part of the Brownwood ISD team and the Brownwood community. As I visit with staff, students, and community members, their Brownwood Lion pride is evident. We are lucky to be a part of such a great school district and community! I commit together we will attack each day with infectious enthusiasm and a great attitude. We will work at a healthy tempo to do what is best for our students.
As Brownwood Superintendent, I will focus on three main areas. First, I will help create an environment where we continually focus on our mission and vision of putting students first. Second, I will help the district recruit, hire, and retain outstanding personnel to work with and for our students. Third, I will help our district remove distractions and implement improvements to help our outstanding teachers and personnel focus on our students and their learning.
