Dear Menifee Union School District Community,

It is truly an honor and privilege to serve the students, families, and community of Menifee as your new Superintendent. Throughout my 27 years in education, I have served students in a variety of roles including teacher, assistant principal, principal, director of student services including special education, and assistant superintendent of business services. I look forward to working alongside you as we navigate these extraordinary times.

As I have started my time in MUSD, it is evident that our most valuable resource is our people…our children, our teachers and staff, our families, and our community. Although Menifee is quickly approaching 100,000 residents, many people have shared that it is a small town and it is apparent that is due to the relationships that forged and the family-like feel at each school and throughout the community.

Our staff has worked diligently since the school dismissal to ensure that our students continue to receive a quality education, that they are well feed, and that we are ready and prepared to re-open schools as soon as we are able. Whereas there are so many staff members who have been dedicated to the service of our students we are especially indebted to our outstanding teaching staff who have quickly and effectively transitioned their instruction from an in person to a distance learning model. Also, our Nutrition Services department has ensured that our children have received healthy and delicious meals each and every day.

As we move forward, I look forward to continuing with the District’s visioning process that was initiated by our Board of Trustees to create our roadmap for our future as a district. This vision will allow us to ensure that we focus the resources of our District…both personnel and financial resources…to successfully prepare our students for their future.

Thank you to all of you who have met with me, either virtually or in person, or have greeted me. I have never felt so welcomed before. Additionally, thank you for your patience and understanding during these unprecedented times. I strongly believe that as we work together as partners during these extraordinary times, we will transform education for future generations of learners. It is through the support of our staff and the community that we will ensure that students are safe, secure, and receiving the best possible education that we can provide.

I look forward to a time when we can meet in person.
