Welcome to West Deptford Schools

Letter from the Superintendent

Dear West Deptford School Community, 
It is my honor to have started as Superintendent of the West Deptford School District. I consider it a true privilege to have been appointed the new Superintendent of Schools and would like to officially introduce myself to this great community. 
As you well know, the West Deptford Schools have maintained a strong reputation for academic excellence with creative programming and tireless work from all members of the staff. Our teachers provide opportunities for student success at all levels, and our support staff maintains a close connection to support students in a caring, compassionate way. As an educator for over 20 years, I truly value the traditions, programs, and services we have in place.  I am committed to building on our tradition of success to ensure that our students have opportunities to explore college and career opportunities from the time they begin their formal schooling.   
The tradition, pride, and commitment to the West Deptford Schools from the community was what initially drew me to this District. This tradition, pride, and commitment was evident when the Board of Education conducted a very thorough Superintendent search. I take the responsibility that I have accepted as Superintendent very seriously. My goal is to communicate with the community as transparently as possible, getting feedback on changes, and explaining the reason for changes thoroughly. As Superintendent of Schools, I will be accessible to stakeholders and maintain close communication with our Building Administration. I encourage and welcome any questions, comments, or concerns you have about our schools. As this community has done since it was formed in 1871, we are committed to finding creative solutions that maximize programs and minimize expense.    
As a District, there will be challenges and we will meet them head on. We will also celebrate the accomplishments and successes. I am looking forward to outreach events and encourage you to attend if you can. I am humbled to join such a wonderful community and understand the tradition of West Deptford students achieving at a high level. After meeting with Administrators and teachers, we have great plans to continue the growth of our students. 
Also, at this time, I would like to thank Mr. Steven Crispin for his service to the District. I've had the opportunity to spend some time with Mr. Crispin and am very impressed by what he has accomplished. I know his are big shoes to fill.   
It is certainly an exciting time to join the West Deptford School District, and I’m looking forward to meeting our students, parents, staff, and community members. Along with all our staff, I look forward to supporting student achievement. Go Eagles!
