Superintendent's Office

Leading toward a supportive learning environment

I am honored to begin my service as your Superintendent.  Great communities have great schools.  I commit to you that the high schools of the PUHSD (Colfax, Confluence, Confluence West, Del Oro, Foresthill, Maidu, and Placer) will continue building on their great reputations that motivate parents to raise their families in this area. We will also continue to innovate to be as responsive as possible to the unique needs of our students and families.

In partnership with the Trustees, parents, educators, and community members to ensure all students are prepared for life after high school, I will:


·       Stay committed to student safety;

·   Nurture healthy relationships with elementary school districts and local agencies;

·   Honor and support the professionalism of educators and support staff;

·   Communicate effectively with each other;

·   Provide a first-rate high school education and experience.


I am not only a local resident; I am also a product as a proud graduate of our District.  The values taught to me while growing up in Loomis and going to our public schools have given me a strong sense of commitment and responsibility to all of our families.  This motivates and obligates me to ensure that our high schools are a source of pride for all.  


Thank you for supporting your high school, and I look forward to working with you.
