The City of East Cleveland presents an opportunity to actualize a higher calling. I say calling because my professional career with the range of skills and expertise I gained will lead us to the purpose we collective seek of expanded educational opportunity and equity. East Cleveland is a community of committed people eager to show to our amazing students and “whole child” practices in our district that are innovative and known throughout the nation.
In short, East Cleveland City Schools will be a place where students will grow and achieve greatness. The school’s role is to light the path to lifelong learning, personal betterment and giving back to the community for every student we have the privilege to educate. I have committed my professional career to step into this calling where I approach an opportunity to lead this district with honor and humility.
