“From the minute I started learning about the Silver Falls School District, the more enamored I have become.  The supportive community; a focus on building strong, trusting relationships with students and staff; a focused strategic plan; and a unique organizational model are just a few of the many reasons why I leaped at this opportunity.  I cannot wait to begin this journey with the students and staff of the Silver Falls School District.  I am humbled and honored to go to work for them.”
