I am the superintendent of a small K-8 district in beautiful northwest Montana near Glacier National Park and Whitefish Mountain Ski Resort. Our administrators, teachers, and staff wear many hats. In addition to my role as superintendent, some of my other responsibilities include supervising and coaching our other five administrators, helping prepare our district budget, working with policy, assisting with curriculum, instruction, and assessment, performing human resources functions, and assisting with district communication.
