A Note From Our Superintendent

Welcome to the Grantham School District 2017-18 Year,

I am pleased to introduce myself as your new superintendent for the Grantham School District. I have thoroughly enjoyed spending my first weeks here getting to know the wonderful people that make up our school community and learning about the phenomenal work that’s been done for Grantham’s children. A special thanks goes out to Superintendent Guillette for making this transition very smooth and very positive.

As an educator, I have a strong belief in supporting the academic, social, emotional, and physical well being of all learners. This translates into strong academic programs that reach a wide variety of content areas and engages students to do their best; a safe and healthy school facility and climate that supports students to feel comfortable while they learn and grow; and an emphasis on wellness for healthy eating and physical activity that build habits that last a lifetime. I believe that each and every learner deserves to have the doors opened for them that will provide the brightest future possible.

Personally, I live in Gilford, NH with my husband and three children, who are now 17, 15, and 12. We’ll be adding another teen this fall as we open our home to an exchange student from Paraguay, and we’re all looking forward to this great opportunity and experience. I attended Oberlin College for my undergraduate degree and continued to earn a Master of Education at St. Michael’s College and an Education Specialist degree at UNH. Currently, I am in the final stages of completing my doctoral degree from Southern New Hampshire University. As I’m sure you can see, I am a true believer in lifelong learning.

It is clear to me already that Grantham is a district full of educators, parents, and community members who want the best for children. I’m excited to be on this journey with you and look forward to our work ahead. I hope to be able to hear from you as much as possible, so please feel free to email, call, and best of all, schedule a time when we can sit down and talk in person. If there’s an event in town where I might have the opportunity to meet you and others, please let me know. The School Board and I will soon be reaching out to the community for active members of our Strategic Planning Committee, and I hope you’ll choose to work with us to design this important plan for the future of GSD. We need your voices to make this the best plan for Grantham.

I hope you’re all savoring the beautiful summer we’re having, and I can’t wait to see our students ready for learning and fun when September comes around.
