It is a great honor to join the Bixby community as Superintendent of Schools. I firmly believe we have a foundation in place to accomplish incredible things for Bixby’s children and families over the next decade and beyond.
The Bixby School District has earned a reputation for academic excellence, and the boundless opportunities offered beyond the classroom setting are exemplary, as they provide enriching learning experiences for students at all ages and levels. As an educator for 25 years, I wholeheartedly value the programs and services already in place, and I am committed to building upon past practices to ensure that current and future students have opportunities to explore their interests and find their true passions.
In addition to the robust educational program, it is the level of community involvement that drew me to this district. Bixby is blessed to have involved citizens who are committed to making our city a wonderful place to live, work, and raise a family. I witnessed this sense of pride in our schools and community as I went through the interview process with our School Board. Additionally, I have experienced it firsthand over the past few weeks, as each of the school staff, parents, students and community leaders I have met have been extremely welcoming and helpful. Please know that it is my intent to make every effort to foster and cultivate this positive culture to ensure the continued success of our students, schools and community.
While serving as Superintendent, I plan to be accessible to all stakeholders and maintain an open door communication policy. I encourage and welcome any questions, comments or concerns you have about our schools and can be reached directly at 918.366.2200.
My wife, Anna, and I are blessed with three sons, two daughters, and three new grandbabies. When I am not busy with work or family, I enjoy running, backpacking, reading, and friendships.
It is an exciting time for the Bixby School District, and I’m looking forward to the year ahead. Please accept my best wishes for a happy and healthy summer.
