Welcome Newfield Community,
I feel very honored and blessed to have been chosen as the Superintendent of Newfield CSD. I welcome the opportunity to collaborate with the BOE, faculty, staff, students, and families to help us grow and move forward as an educational institution servicing your students.
My approach for positive growth is the ability for people to collaborate and communicate in a constructive manner with measurable outcomes and goals. One of our main areas of focus will be diversity and equity for all in both the school and the community. This is obtained through policy and procedure review, incorporating school and community involvement, as well as follow through on implementing systemic change. When done with purpose and planning, that will allow all students to be successful in the classroom and out of the classroom. Creating curriculum and programs that aligns with NYS standards is imperative for our young people to gain knowledge helping them to learn and grow while in school and assisting them to advance in life when they graduate. Newfield CSD is an amazing school with so much to offer--yet we have only started to tap the resources to make us better.
It will take all of us to move Newfield forward. There will be some growing pains and uncomfortable moments along the way. We need to see this as an opportunity and not defeat. If mistakes are made we will need to work harder to correct them. When success occurs we will need to make sure to recognize those that are involved and the advancements we have made. Owning up to our mistakes is as important as celebrating our successes.
I hope you will jump onboard as we start this journey together and see the opportunity for all young people to find success at Newfield CSD no matter how young or old. We have to remember we are in education for the people of tomorrow. Education is not a job, it's a career that is molding and assisting our young people to help them find their path in life. We all found our way and now it’s time for us to help the young people find theirs.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart,
Newfield CSD Superintendent
