Good evening, Taylor ISD Community,
    I am incredibly grateful to the Taylor ISD School Board for selecting me as your
    Superintendent, and placing their trust in me to lead in a close-knit community that
    takes such pride in our students, schools and the rich heritage we have here.
    Over the next few months, one of my top priorities will be to actively engage with the
    Taylor community, to listen and learn in order to understand the fabric of Taylor and our
    strengths and areas of opportunity.
    I believe the most successful leader is one who puts their people first by ensuring they
    have the skills, tools and resources they need, and who demonstrates a high level of
    trust in their team by giving them the autonomy they need to do the job.
    Your insight is invaluable to Taylor ISD’s mission of Inspiring, Equipping and Empowering
    Every Student to Achieve their Unique Potential. Your voice will provide a clear
    understanding of our progress toward our District Goals, and how we can ensure each
    student receives the highest quality educational experience. Families are our partners,
    and I am committed to providing the leadership and support necessary to ensure that
    together, we are equipped with the tools needed for student success.
    There’s a gift shop downtown that has a sign on the side of the building, “A little Town,
    A Lotta Love.” My family and I are truly appreciative of the warm welcome and all the
    friendly smiles and kindness we have received. I am beyond excited for the opportunity
    to grow alongside Taylor ISD, and to continue building upon the legacy of this wonderful
    Warm Regards,
