Superintedent's Message

Dear Parents,

Welcome to the Northwest Local School District and the 2016-17 school year! As an administrator and educational professional for 16 years, I've had the opportunity to work with students from all walks of life. There is no doubt in my mind that Northwest offers exactly what students need to grow.

I am proud to be able to join an energetic and passionate staff that is focused on creating positive learning experiences for students. The district lives its mission every day. Our mission statement: ""Preparing students to meet the academic, social, civic and career needs for a global society." At Northwest we create passionate learners by maximizing student achievement through dynamic learning experiences which inspire and provide a quality education for all students within a safe and community-supported environment."

As I begin my tenure as your Superintendent, I have a vested interest in providing a quality educational environment for all students, staff and families in the school district as I plan to be a part of the community for some time. One of my greatest beliefs is that all students can learn given an educational environment that is excellent. An environment that is inspiring, positive, and enriching makes school engaging and when students look forward to attending school, they will learn. Anticipation and hope surrounds each new year of school for students. Together we can create an educational atmosphere that our community is proud of and experiences that will last long after students graduate. I invite you to join us in continuing the big school opportunities that we provide in a small school setting here at Northwest. I am grateful to be joining your team.
