"I feel so blessed that my family and I have been part of the Fairview School District for the past 12 years.  It is a privilege to serve a community that places a high value on education and to work alongside parents and teachers who work tirelessly to make this district the best it can be.  The number of organizations that work in unison, for the benefit of the students of this district, is absolutely amazing. 

Since I have worked here, I have tried to foster a coordinated curriculum that utilizes the most up-to-date pedagogy, while promoting new student experiences that expose students to new and interesting ideas.  I am always looking to implement new and innovating after school programming.  If you know anyone willing to host after-school experiences, please contact me."
