As your superintendent at Bald Eagle Area, I want to thank you, the community, for such a warm welcome back to the District. I am humbled and honored for the opportunity to serve you, the citizens of the Bald Eagle Area School District. I have so many fond memories of growing up in the “old neighborhood.” Bald Eagle continues to be a special place, not because of the location, but because of the caring people.
I am so proud to be a member of a school district where our students are our number one priority – where every child is important. When we say “education for all,” we mean all. We will continue to focus on a safe and nurturing environment, a place where hard work, respect, and acceptance sets the standard by which we model.
There will be many challenges as we move forward. Health care and retirement costs chip away at our bottom line. Academically, No Child Left Behind and Adequate Yearly Progress drive many decisions. However, every challenge provides an opportunity; we will persevere and we will succeed. We are a community of hard-working people. We will roll up our sleeves, put our heads together, and do what is best for our children.
In closing, I look forward to a long and productive relationship serving the Bald Eagle Area School District community. Any student, staff member, or community member can feel free to contact me personally with any concern they may have. Please call me at (814) 355-4860 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
