Dear Bartlett Elementary Families,

 I m proud to serve as the principal of Bartlett Elementary.  My first few years were filled with many highlights and also some very unique circumstances.  Prior to coming to Bartlett, I was a principal in Holly Area Schools.  I have previously taught kindergarten, first grade, and was a resource room teacher at the elementary and secondary levels. I live in Highland Township with my wife Lindsey and our two sons, Henry and Clark. I believe that strong, positive relationships are the foundation of an excellent educational experience. 

 My top priorities are to keep our students safe and grow each child to his/her potential. My vision for our students is to develop a community of leaders who are critical thinkers, creative problem-solvers, innovative, and contribute to the success of their community. I am passionate about empowering students to take ownership of their learning and school. I look forward to fostering an environment where students have strong connections to their classrooms and school and meaningful learning opportunities that develop a sense of purpose.  

I would like to extend a warm welcome to our new families and students.  The Bartlett staff and community are wonderfully supportive. They make Bartlett a great place to learn and grow!
