To ensure that District 70 students experience learning that prepares them to live and work in the 21st Century
About the Superintendent's Department
As Superintendent for Libertyville School District 70 and a resident of the Village of Libertyville, I am extremely proud of our learning community. Libertyville is a wonderful place to live and raise a family. Considered by the Chicago Tribune as one of the Top Places to Work, 2015, the school district and staff are exceptional and the village is incomparable. I am pleased to have acted as the president of Lake County Superintendents Association, served as chairman of the David Adler Music and Arts Center board of directors, and become an invested member of the executive board to the Special Education District of Lake County. My commitment to visible leadership operates under a philosophy that children benefit from strong positive relationships with adults who guide and inspire their learning, as educators benefit from a strong positive relationship with children who guide and inspire their teaching. After more than two decades as a public school administrator, I have invited nationally known authors and speakers for unique educational assemblies and professional development opportunities. I have regularly encouraged teachers to become collaborative, self-directed learners and to mentor college students entering the field of education. I have held the privilege of presenting at both the state and national levels and annually speak with education majors at local universities and colleges. I hold a passion and love for leading, as well as building a positive, progressive team among colleagues and staff. It is a pleasure to be an integral part of this extraordinary school district and have the opportunity to build lasting relationships with students, parents, staff and constituents. I welcome all to become a part of this distinctive environment to live and learn. The superintendent's office is responsible for all contact with the Board of Education, meetings of the Board of Education, school policy oversight, annual school calendar, approval of school and community fliers, and the establishment of relationships with local government agencies. The superintendent's office is a welcoming environment, open to meeting and supporting the needs of the Libertyville community. Supt.
