Hello, Newton-Lee Elementary School students, parents, staff, and alumni, and thank you for the warm welcome! I am excited to join such an enthusiastic and supportive educational community!
In my career I have been blessed to have worked with knowledgeable, positive teaching professionals in many schools and in three states. I have taught in Connecticut, New York, and, of course, Virginia, as my wife and I moved to Loudoun 10 years ago. My school administration experience began at Mill Run ES, which is located here in Ashburn, and then I joined the wonderful team at Pinebrook ES, which is in Aldie. Most recently, I served as the principal of Aldie ES and Middleburg ES, two wonderful, small, and unique schools in rural Loudoun County.
My wife and I are residents of Loudoun County, and we are proud to be raising our children in Loudoun County Public Schools. The values of our community—hard work, perseverance, family, and its focus on education—are our values. We feel so fortunate to live here.
As a new member of the Newton-Lee community, I am committed to providing our children with a high quality, 21st Century education. Together we must continue to challenge our children in order to successfully prepare them to be Explorers and Leaders. I look forward to partnering with all of you in this endeavor.
