After eleven incredible years in Bloomfield Hills, this summer I will be transitioning to Troy School District to serve as the Assistant Superintendent for Secondary Instruction.
My experiences in Bloomfield have been rich; observing and supporting high levels of instruction, collaborating on building designs, championing high impact resources for students and teachers and celebrating student and staff achievements. The list could go on an on, but ultimately my time in Bloomfield has enriched my life both personally and professionally, for that I am truly grateful.
I am excited to begin my tenure in Troy but will miss the relationships I have established in Bloomfield along the way. Please know that my door is always open and I look forward to our paths crossing again soon!
