Welcome to the 2019 - 2020 School Year!
Dear Federal Hocking students, parents, staff, and community members,
Welcome to the 2019-20 school year! I am honored to be your superintendent of schools. Over the last few weeks I’ve had the opportunity to meet many wonderful students, parents, staff, and community members. I’m impressed with the demonstrated commitment to serving the needs of ALL students.
My wife Karrie, a school counselor, and I have two sons (ages 20 and 17) and a daughter (age 14). We are the third generation to live on our family farm in Athens County. Together we have almost 50 years of experience serving students in Athens County. I believe I have grown and been successful as an educator because of my roles as a husband and father.
I believe all students deserve an education that provides high quality learning experiences that challenge them and help them to grow in an environment that is physically and emotionally safe. Through academic, extra-curricular, and co-curricular activities students should develop positive and healthy relationships with their peers, teachers, and mentors so they can be successful in their chosen pathway.
My mission is to help every student achieve their goals. Supporting teaching and learning, as well as building on the great relationships already developed throughout the community, will help accomplish this mission.
I look forward to working with all of you. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.
