Welcome to the Superintendent Page

Welcome to the SAU 20 Superintendent Information Page. I am excited to introduce myself as the Superintendent of Schools in SAU 20. I am honored to serve the communities in the capacity of superintendent and I look forward to building a partnership with you in the best interest of our children.

My career in SAU 20 began in 2005 as the principal of the Milan Village School, after 9 year in Milan I moved down to Gorham to be the principal of the the Middle/High School and was there until I moved across the street to the SAU office last month. I have many fond memories serving the SAU as a principal. I look forward to my continued work with the staff and students of Errol, Milan, Dummer, Gorham Randolph and Shelburne. I also look forward to building relationships with community leaders and residents to support our children. On a side note, I believe that this is one of the best SAUs in the state and I look forward to showcasing some of the amazing efforts that our students, staff and community members are involved in.

With this blog, I will discuss a variety of timely issues and provide information that I hope will be helpful to SAU 20 staff, parents, students, and community members. I plan on posting at the beginning of every month so please check back for updates.

Please feel free to contact me directly with any questions or suggestions.
