My goal this year is to create a collaborative culture where students and staff are focused on students embodying the attributes of the Summit School District graduate profile while realizing the possibilities available for their post secondary lives.  This focus and alignment will be achieved through clarity in communication, collaboration, and supportive accountability.

Please do not hesitate to contact me (Hablo Español).  I look forward to partnering with you to see this goal realized and at events cheering our students on!

The opportunity to lead Summit High School for the 2023/2024 school year is exciting for many reasons.  The responsibility to navigate change is critical as we work to engage students in individual career and academic planning, while maintaining a focus on growth and achievement.  

Student opportunities can be realized through targeted alignment of core content, exploratory learning opportunities, and a clear understanding of the relationship between their secondary education and career and post-secondary readiness.

Welcome to Summit High School.  I have spent the last 9 years supporting our families with special needs at Summit High School.  I am very excited to be joining the administrative team this year. 

My goal has always been to provide meaningful and engaging interventions to see our students thrive, which will always be my passion and priority.  I am looking forward to learning with and elevating our teachers to ensure all students feel a sense of belonging where they can achieve.  

We are incredibly fortunate to have the community support around us and will continue to build opportunities for families to call Summit High School their home.  I look forward to meeting you and know this will be a great year!

I am thrilled to join the Summit High School community this year! This is my 14th year in education—eight as a teacher and seven in administration. I have served in large comprehensive and smaller alternative education settings. 

My purpose is to ensure a safe, healthy, and inclusive learning environment for all students. I accomplish this by helping students navigate conflict, advocate for needs, and leverage talents in positive and productive ways. We have a rich, vibrant, diverse, and incredibly unique community. Together, we will elevate all assets of our community to ensure students graduate Curious, Globally Aware, Courageous, Prepared, and Growth Oriented. I am grateful to walk this path with you all!
