    Message From The Superintendent


    With pride and great honor, I accepted the Niagara Falls Board of Education’s appointment as Superintendent. I pledge to serve with integrity, vision, and fairness.

    In the past 32 years, I have been a monitor, special education teacher, grade three teacher, dean of students, elementary and middle school principal, chief educational administrator of Niagara Falls High School, and Deputy Superintendent. As the son of an educator and a 1980 graduate of Niagara Falls High School, I am extremely proud that my three children have attended public schools, and will graduate from Niagara Falls High School.

    We have excellent public schools that will continue to embrace diversity, strive to provide learning opportunities for all students, and seek to achieve academic, social, and emotional success, all while being fiscally responsible. Our highly qualified and professional staff is more than capable of carrying out this mission.

    I recognize that any success is dependent on partnerships with parents and the community; such partnerships enhance our schools and provide a critical level of support and assistance.

    You are always welcome in our District. I plan to make every effort to connect with you. Together we will continue to make a difference in the lives of our children and community. I look forward to undertaking this journey with the whole community.
