Lower Merion School District



I am honored to serve the Lower Merion School District as your Superintendent! I am incredibly impressed with the dedication of our administrators, faculty, staff and Board, all of whom are focused on ensuring our students' success.

I come to LMSD with over two decades of teaching and leadership experiencing, having served as a teacher, principal, curriculum supervisor, assistant superintendent and superintendent, always holding fast to the core value that ALL students can and will reach their maximum potential when we provide a high-quality education, along with the time and support they need to grow and develop.

As our students "Enter to Learn" you will see this vision manifest in a variety of ways including:

  • An increased focus on student voice
  • Schools and classrooms responding dynamically to the strengths and needs of all learners
  • Continued planning for full-day kindergarten
  • Final preparations for the implementation of healthy start times
  • Discussions about strategic planning for our future.

Our faculty, staff, and Board understand the great responsibility we have of educating our community's children. Each day we will ensure that our students' curricular, co-curricular and athletic experiences allow them to "Go Forth to Serve."
