Dear Bremerton School District students, families, staff and community members:
It is an honor to be your interim superintendent for the 2022-23 school year.
I’ve spent 37 years in public education. As a native of Vancouver, British Columbia, I am happy to be back in the Pacific Northwest after a long career in public education in California.
We all recognize that the past two-and-a-half years have been extremely challenging for everyone, especially our students and our staff. As your interim superintendent during this transitional year, I am committed to ensuring that we continue to address the effects the COVID-19 pandemic has had on our students and staff. I will work to ensure that we continue to provide equitable education opportunities, and support for all students and staff.
I want to thank the Board for trusting me with this responsibility and the opportunity to serve our students, families, staff, and the Bremerton community while they take on the very important job of selecting a superintendent to replace Dr. Aaron Leavell starting in the 2023-24 school year.
I look forward to the year ahead and wish all our students and staff a successful 2022-23 school year!
Interim Superintendent, 2022-23
Bremerton School District
