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
