Welcome to the Lee County School District web site! As our administration and staff conduct their annual preparation for the new school year, I am working diligently to make the transition to Lee County as smooth as possible. I have already held numerous one-on-one meetings with our Central Office Staff as well as the principals.
I view Lee County as a Lighthouse System where every school in every community can realize positive growth and improvement with the right mindset, goals and plans. I want to build on the strong educational foundation and rich traditions in each community, while simultaneously developing the mindset that we are all part of the Lee County School District. I plan to spend a large portion of my time connecting with the community, listening and communicating with our principals, administrative teams, teachers, staff, students and parents. I will immerse myself into Lee County so that I can clearly see our strengths and weaknesses and can develop goals that will be tailored to our needs.
My mother was a school teacher and I am a proud graduate of the public school system. I began teaching in 1984 and knew right away that I wanted to become an administrator who could make an impact on all students! I have been married to my wife, Lori, for 29 years. She is the Director of Technology for Pioneer RESA. I have two sons ages 26 and 24. My oldest son is engaged to be married and has recently moved to Lee County. My youngest son graduated from the University of Georgia and is employed with the Capstone Financial Planning Group in Athens, Georgia.
As your new Superintendent, I look forward to becoming a part of the rich tradition that Lee County represents. I will make a positive difference and I will be a positive influence to our students, employees and communities. I look forward to having a long and successful career as the leader of the Lee County Schools!
