Welcome from the Superintendent

  • On behalf of our more than 3,500 employees and the Governing Board, I am honored and grateful to join the Peoria Unified School District.
    There is much to be said about a community that speaks of family when it comes to its students and staff and that is well-known for its excellence nationwide. Being new to the district, my top priorities are to establish relationships, learn the successful systems already in place, engage stakeholders in determining top priorities and to hit the ground running.
    I am passionate about teachers, support staff, student achievement, technology and community engagement. I look forward to continue the vision of Peoria Unified, "Every student, every day, prepared to shape tomorrow."
    If our administration team or I can be of any additional assistance to you, please do not hesitate to reach us at 623-486-6100 or by email.
