Office of the Superintendent Banner
  • Dear GESD Community,

    I am honored and humbled to serve my second year as the Glendale Elementary School District Superintendent. Glendale Elementary consistently offers outstanding educational programs. We pride ourselves on providing innovative learning opportunities for our students. We believe our schools are the best choice for all students.

    We are extremely proud of our GESD community and parent partnerships that help make our school system one of the best in Arizona. Working together, we will continue to empower our students to achieve success in all that they strive for as students. Our students have an enthusiasm for learning, which is evident as you walk through our schools and see this cultivated through the work of our dedicated school staff. GESD is truly a mosaic of minds that produces academic excellence and strong community leaders.

    The continued building of our partnerships with our District’s families and our community stakeholders is vital to a successful school setting.  We are here to serve our students and support our families. We have a dedicated staff that truly cares about the success of all students. Our motto is ‘’All in for ALL Kids”. We believe community strengthens education.

    We view ourselves as a community of learners that come together to do meaningful work for “ALL” our students.  We have been recognized as Arizona’s only Professional Learning Community School District. This speaks to the uniqueness of GESD where we exemplify a diverse foundation for vibrant futures. 

    Our greatest encounter should be to always do our best to meet the diverse needs of each and every student. GESD is committed to meeting not only the educational needs of our students but also their social and emotional needs in a safe school environment.

    I encourage each of you to reach out to your child’s teacher and begin to build those parent/teacher relationships with mutual respect. We have a staff that believes in the promise of educational excellence while radiating kindness.

    In closing, please let me reaffirm that I truly believe that each of us wants our students to thrive in a safe and nurturing environment. With extraordinary enthusiasm and excitement, I look forward to working with the GESD community.
